A two hour DVD recorded at Victoria Halls, Selkirk, on Sunday 5th August, 2018.
This critically acclaimed multi media production of a Scot's journey to The Western Front in WW1 was devised, written and directed by Ian McCalman.
A series of concerts around Scotland, sponsored by WW100 Scotland, Poppy Scotland, Legion Scotland and Creative Scotland was arranged for 2018 and Greentrax Recordings produced this DVD from the first of these concerts.
This Concert production arose out of the Greentrax double CD – ‘Far, Far From Ypres - Songs, Poems and Music of World War 1’ (CDTRAX1418) and has been presented in several venues across Scotland, including a sell-out return visit to Celtic Connections in the Glasgow Concert Hall.
The DVD should not be regarded as simply a duplication of the double CD content but is an independent production.

"It was a beautifully crafted show and there should be some way of letting everyone in the world experience it. Come back anytime." Donald Shaw Director of Celtic Connections.
"A standing ovation raised the roof of the Queen’s Hall for several minutes after the show had finished. It was a stirring end to a night honouring a terrible tragedy, one that left the entire audience moved and sombre, but strangely elated." Broadway Baby.
