:Rarely seen since its initial release, this documentary follows Billy Connolly on his 1975 Irish tour. A comedy charmer, which can now be seen in all its glory thanks to a BFI restoration.

The Big Yin - complete with banana boots - was hitting the big-time when this film followed him on his 1975 Irish tour, which culminated in his famous engagement at the ABC Cinema in Belfast during the Troubles. Rarely screened since its initial release, the film can now be seen in its full glory. In addition to showcasing Connolly’s comic and musical talent, it also captures his natural charm off-stage. This loving restoration by the BFI was undertaken in collaboration with Murray Grigor, Douglas Weir, National Library of Scotland, University of California and R3Store Studios, using the only 16mm print known to exist. 77mins (Glasgow Film Festival).
