Drama on 3
BBC Radio Three
Sunday 10th June 2007

Time: 20:45 to 22:15 (1 hour and 30 minutes long)


Black Watch, by Gregory Burke.
A radio version of the National Theatre of Scotland's award-winning theatre production, Black Watch is based on interviews conducted by Gregory Burke with former soldiers who served in Iraq. Hurtling from a pool room in Fife, to an armoured wagon in Iraq, the action is viewed through the eyes of those on the ground, and reveals what it means to be part of this legendary Scottish regiment, and the war on terror. This play contains very strong language. Featuring performances by Ali Craig, Emun Elliott and Paul Rattray.
