Book cinema tickets for Culloden

In his debut feature, Peter Watkins imagines a documentary film crew covering the Battle of Culloden. This ground-breaking film conveys an incredible amount of political and historical information within a humanistic, gripping narrative.

A detailed study of the 1746 battle and the ensuing brutal suppression of the Highland Scots, Culloden draws much of its analysis and voice-over narration from the history book of the same name by John Prebble, and presented a radical political statement at the time - particularly in the shadow of the ongoing Vietnam War.

The screening will be introduced by David Forsyth, Principal Curator of Medieval–Early Modern Collections and curator of the Bonnie Prince Charlie and the Jacobites exhibition at the National Museum of Scotland (23 June–12 November 2017). Visit for details.
