Working with cinematographer David Peat directors Murray Grigor and Patrick Higson capture Billy Connolly at his brilliant best, as the comedian employs his trademark humour and no small amount of roguish charm to navigate the political tensions of 1970s Dublin and Belfast. Featuring iconic stand-up material alongside fascinating behind-the-scenes footage, this previously elusive milestone of British comedy has been restored in 2K from original 16mm materials, reaffirming the warmth and genius that has endeared Connolly to generations of fans.

Available on BFI Dual Format DVD and Blu-ray from Monday 20 May.
