Featured video: HUGH MACDIARMID: A Portrait
Get Flash Player to watch films.
An offbeat, affectionate portrait of the Scottish poet, Hugh MacDiarmid. There is straightforward material of him in his own home, and in addition to speaking his own poems, the poet gracefully enacts the film-maker's interpretation of them.
The Scottish Screen Archive is supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund.
