The Land of Robert Burns

United Kingdom, 1956

Please note

Sorry, we don't have images or video for this item.

This short account of the poet’s life is set among contemporary scenes of the people of south-west Scotland as they grow from childhood to adulthood. A representative selection of his songs, sung by the Saltire singers, takes on fresh significance when heard against a background of the people and the countryside he knew and loved.
