“For Love and Liberty” – a major drama about the life of Robert Burns.
“For love and Liberty” is an exciting, rollicking, and yet tender drama with incidental music that makes extensive use of Burns’s own poetry lyrics. It will undoubtedly appeal to TV producers with vision and determination who will have a ready TV market all around the world, especially USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and of course the UK.
It portrays the colourful and eventful life of Robert Burns, Scotland’s national bard, with its relevant messages for today including religion, nationalism, fraternity, and equality for all. With the right treatment and drive it will be a major production to follow in the footsteps of the other Scottish historical successes “Braveheart” and “Rob Roy”, satisfying a worldwide demand for knowledge about what drove and influenced this low-born talented young man to rise to the heights of national and international fame, only to fall to illness and poverty.
His songs and poetry are recognised and adored all round the world and “For Love and Liberty” will bring the story of Burns to life.
