Film appeal

In 1983 Channel 4 broadcast a film called Accounts.

The film was made in and around Kelso and portrayed the lives of a widow and her two teenage sons who move to the area from Allendale in Northumberland. The film covers a number of issues including financial problems on the farm, business diversification, extra-marital affairs and a memorable coming-out scene when the younger brother announces that he “would rather run with the tups than lie with the ewes”.

The film was last broadcast during the late 1980s and I would dearly love to see it again.
