- Programme Note: an Interview with Terence DaviesAlthough I felt I had to see the film, it was a disappointment in comparison to the book itself and also to the seminal 1971 series, which admittedly, could hardly be improved upon. The characters, not least Chris herself, failed to convince and were rendered almost mute by the absence of narrative, used to such effect in both the book and in the earlier version. The folk of Kinraddie were also largely absent, apart from what amounted to almost cameo performances by the characters of Chae Strachan and Long Rob of The Mill; where was Kirsty Strachan, or Mistress Mutch, with her 'gley e'en'? And as for Peter Mullan as John Guthrie, his best scene was as the corpse - no surprises there (plus they had him sharpening the back of the scythe, not the blade edge) Terence Davies said he was impressed by that 1971 series, as well he should have been, but he paid it poor homage in this film.

- Visible Cinema: Launch of GFT Deaf and Hard of Hearing Film ClubHello, I hope this email finds you well. I'm Abi and I work at Cinema For All - the national organisation for the support and development of community film exhibition in the UK. I'm currently doing some research into cinema screenings for audiences who experience hearing difficulties and deaf clubs that screen films. We're compiling an info document to help other community cinemas make their venues more accessible to audiences with hearing difficulties and one for deaf clubs that wish to start screening films. I think Visible Cinema is fantastic! I was wondering if it would be possible to speak to someone at GFT about the project? It would considerably help my research to learn about your experiences with Visible Cinema. I can chat via email or telephone, whichever is most convenient. Thank you for reading this and I look forward to hearing from you. Best wishes, Abi
