Sunset Song 1971
Sunset Song is a 1932 novel by the Scottish writer Lewis Grassic Gibbon. It is widely regarded as one of the most important Scottish novels of the 20th century. It is the first part of a trilogy A Scots Quair.
'Sunset Song' is structured around the four farming seasons – ploughing, drilling, seed time and harvest. The main character is Chris Guthrie, the strong-minded daughter of a family of tenant farmers, and we follow her relationships with her family, her school, her neighbours and her lovers in Kinraddie until such time as the community is transformed by the tragedy of the first world war. While the village comes together in times of crisis, its everyday patterns of living are marked by class barriers, ideological disagreements and personal suspicions.
In 1971 BBC Scotland made an adaptation of the book for television. The series was the first colour drama made by BBC Scotland and also contained the first nude scene.
