Brond: The Complete Miniseries


Channel 4’s celebrated Glasgow-based political thriller adapted from Fredric Lindsay’s novel, voted one of the best Scottish books of all time. Starring Stratford Johns and John Hannah in his first screen role.

Rated 7.9 on IMDB, this three-part adaptation was directed by Michael Caton-Jones (Basic Instinct 2) and features cinematography from Oscar-nominee Richard Greatrex (Shakespeare in Love) and a haunting soundtrack from Bill Nelson.

Stratford Johns (Z Cars) plays Brond, the menacing mastermind behind the Scottish liberation army. John Hannah (Four Weddings and a Funeral) stars as Robert, a Glasgow University student drawn into the web of political intrigue.

Robert is the sole witness to the murder of a small boy. That same evening he encounters the assailant, Brond, at a party hosted by his professor. Brond is introduced as an old friend by Professor Gracemont, which stops a perplexed Robert from exposing him.

Margaret (Louise Beattie), a fellow student who Robert is keen on, asks him to keep a parcel safe for Brond. Despite Robert’s desperate efforts to get rid of it, he and the mysterious package are taken to Brond.  Brond appears to take a keen interest in him and, against his will, Robert is pulled into a succession of violent and horrifying events.

Also starring BAFTA-winner James Cosmo (Braveheart) and Ian McElhinney (Rogue One).
