Peter McDougall has played a huge role in Scotland's television history. His controversial and gritty dramas, written for the BBC, spawned a whole new era in regional programming and have been a profound influence on many modern playwrights and actors. Three of these plays were screened in the 1970s as part of BBC's Play For Today series. Down Among The Big Boys is a more recent tale from the 90's Screen One series. Four timeless classic dramas in one great package.

Just Another Saturday: Glasgow on the day of the Orange Walk, Jon Morrison is the eager baton twirling parade leader, gradually coming to terms with the violent truth behind the symbolic pageantry.

The Elephant's Graveyard: Two men spend a day together talking their way through their mutual alienation from the world of employment, but what does the future hold?

Just A Boy's Game: Jake, played by Frankie Miller, lives forever in the shadow of his dying grandfather who was once the hardest man in the town. Despite their hatred of each other, Jake tries to live up to the reputation that is his legacy. One day as Jake drinks, fights and drifts his way through life, a bleak realization dawns...

Down Among The Big Boys: CID officer Louie Gibbons is about to marry Claire Donnelly, daughter of Jo Jo. He believes that Claire's father is a businessman. However, Jo Jo's latest business venture is to rob a local bank - and Louie is put in charge of the investigation.

Peter McDougall Did A Great Job Of These Short Movies. I Don't Know Why He Is Not Bringing Out Any Of The Other "Play For Today Series". I Suppose These Are The Best Four Short Movies. Just A Boys Game Is The Best Of The Lot Next To Just Another Saturday. The Elephant's Graveyard Is Also Good But Not As Good As The Other's. Down Among The Big Boys Was A Big Disappointment All I Can Say About Down Among The Big Boys Is That It Is Boring. If You Are A Fan Of Scottish Comedy/Drama You Will Love This.
