The Scots Who Fought Franco 9pm, PBS Amer­ica

The Guardian - The Guide - - Tv Films -

Of all the na­tions whose cit­i­zens vol­un­teered to fight fas­cism in the Span­ish civil war, none made a pro­por­tion­ately greater con­tri­bu­tion than Scot­land. This ab­sorb­ing two-part doc is based around pre­vi­ously un­seen in­ter­views with Scot­tish vet­er­ans. It is a vivid de­pic­tion not only of the war in Spain, but also of the Scot­land of the 1930s – and the rea­sons why hun­dreds of young Scots de­cided Spain’s strug­gle was theirs.
