Ratings:
1 hour

Summary

Acclaimed actors David Rintoul and Vivien Heilbron and eminent musicians Mhairi Lawson and Adrian Chandler present not only Burns' greatest hits, but also a selection of his lesser-known, yet fascinating works. Together these provide a comprehensive overview of his prodigious and versatile genius.

Divided into four thematic sections ('Love', 'Of Mice & Men', 'Off to War' and 'Food & Drink'), there's favourites like "A Red, Red Rose", "To A Mouse", "Tam O'Shanter", and "Ae Fond Kiss", interspersed with less familiar poems and songs such as "Rattlin' Roarin' Willie", "The Slave's Lament", and Burns's philosophy of poetry summarized in the three "Epistle to J. Lapraik".
