Writer Peter McDougall's first televised script for BBC's 'Play For Today' slot in 1972. Set in the west of Scotland, the gritty storyline follows the trials of Alison (Lesley Mackie) and Alec (David Hayman) who, when Alison falls pregnant, decide to marry and inform their respective parents - not an easy task when both families span the sectarian divide. The play explores the entrenched bigotry with humour and honesty, painting a realistic and, at times, bleak vision of the prevailing social climate.
