If you missed it at the 2016 Glasgow Film Festival then now’s your chance to catch Robbie Fraser’s Hamish Henderson documentary, Hamish, as it premieres on BBC ALBA this week.

Hamish Henderson was a major part of Scotland’s cultural scene until his death in 2002. Hamish pays tribute to the many contrary forces and diverse facets of Henderson’s life as a poet, soldier, intellectual, activist, songwriter and leading force of the revival of Scottish folk music.

The film weaves archive footage alongside interviews with Henderson’s family, friends and colleagues.

Hamish is on at BBC ALBA at 9pm on Thursday 22 September.
