Synopsis

Peter Watkins' TV recreation of the 1746 Battle of Culloden. Shot as a contemporary television news report, as if cameras were present at the battle to cover the action and interview the participants, the film had a strong impact at the time of its first broadcast and has since been recognised as a landmark achievement in TV history. This 'special edition' also features Watkins' amateur film 'The Forgotten Faces' (1961) and footage shot on location during the making of 'Culloden'.
