Easter may be over but there's still time to catch up on Long Night at Blackstone! Find it on the iplayer here.
Reviews are in...
"From McIntosh’s natural comedy chops – where you have been all my life? – to Wilson Nimmo’s on the money telly luvvie, Blackstone was a hoot and a half. As for John Gordon Sinclair, it should be the law that he is cast in every BBC Scotland comedy." Alison Rowat - The Herald
"...some funny lines and delightful comedic twists: there's a neat spin on the traditional motif of strangers entering a bar-room full of locals, while Michie enjoyably plays on the laird's well-heeled arrogance." Brian Donaldson, The List
Following the success of West Skerra Light, Greg Hemphill is back with another hilarious spooktacular Long Night at Blackstone. Along with co-writer Donald Mcleary, Hemphill reunites with his comedy/horror cast members John Gordon Sinclair, Lorraine McIntosh, John Michie, Julie Wilson Nimmo, and a special guest star, who will remain, for now, a Scooby Doo mystery.
Long Night at Blackstone will broadcast on Easter Monday 2nd April 9pm on BBC1 Scotland. It is also available on the iplayer across the UK.
Faye Bowers is the host of a low rent paranormal activity show, a master of trickery and pretence, but she is desperate to be taken seriously as a journalist. When she learns that the show is to be axed, she is determined to go out with a bang. The venue for the final show is the mysterious Blackstone Manor, a huge dilapidated pile inhabited by the Laird of Blackstone, and full of stories of past horrors. Though the filming day starts normally enough, it soon becomes apparent that all is not right, and for the very first time in the show's history the ghosts may in fact be real, and very dangerous. Battling backstabbing colleagues as well as the terrors in the house, Faye finds herself making a show that could catapult her career into the big league - if she can survive the night.
The BAFTA nominated feature length documentary Accidental Anarchist is now available to watch online.
Carne Ross was a government highflyer. A career diplomat who believed Western Democracy could save us all. But working inside the system he came to see its failures, deceits and ulterior motives. He felt at first hand the corruption of power. After the Iraq war Carne became disillusioned, quit his job and started searching for answers. This film traces his journey across the globe as he tries to find an answer to the question so many people today are asking themselves – isn’t there a better way?
For Carne there is. Anarchism offers a solution to the brutalities of Capitalism and the dishonesties of Democracy.
