Synopsis

Two films set in post-war rural Scotland. Prunella Scales and Rikki Fulton star in 'Laxdale Hall' (1953), a comedy based on the novel by Eric Linklater. When the villagers in a remote community on the west coast of Scotland refuse to pay their road tax because their only road is full of holes, a London MP and his cronies are sent in to try to resolve the situation. The short drama 'The Glen Is Ours' (1946) follows a demobbed soldier who runs for local election to prevent Cadisburn Glen from being sold.
