Three part series. Gritty tale of tortured power-battle within the Harris tweed industry. Crofters, weavers, mill-owners and vicars. Islanders take veiled suggestion that they might be slightly behind-the-times very personally, with resultant battle fought out in Stornoway Gazette. Shooting London, Paris New York, Tokyo and Harris.
"Justifies the licence fee" (Tom Sutcliffe,Independent) No 4 in Independent's 2009 TV Top Ten. BBC sponsored submissions for BAFTA and Grierson Best factual Series Award.
