DVD Region 2 PAL. Blu-ray Edition also available. The first production of the 7:84 Theatre Company (Scotland) was The Cheviot, the Stag and the Black, Black Oil. The "ceilidh play", as writer John McGrath styled it, is presented in the BBC's 1974 "Play for Today" production to a live audience intercut with filmed reconstructions of the Highland Clearances and the Victorian obsession with hunting stags. Restored in high definition from the original film masters held in the BBC Archives.

Found it at last

I saw The cheviot, the stag ... at the National Film Theatre back in the 1980s and it's taken until now to find a DVD copy. Not yet watched but looking forward to getting furious again. Excellent service from Panamint, and finding The battle for music at the same time was a real bonus.

Excellent DVD, and a brilliant rare film
Friday, 29 October 2021  |  David

Was so keen to see this play as I'd heard it's a legendary bit of theatre. When I found this DVD release I immediately picked it up.
The play itself is haunting and totally relevant. Everyone should know about this
