Welcome to Reel Britannia-a very British podcast about very British movies ...with just a hint of professionalism.

Classic eighties comedy this week from the superb Bill Forsyth

Local Hero (1983)

Up-and-coming Houston oil executive "Mac" MacIntyre (Peter Riegert) gets more than he bargained for when a seemingly simple business trip to Scotland changes his outlook on life. Sent by his colourful boss (Burt Lancaster) to the small village of Ferness, Mac is looking to quickly buy out the townspeople so his company can build a new refinery. But after a taste of country life Mac begins to question whether he is on the right side of this transaction.


"Keep watching the sky, MacIntyre."
