In the autumn of 1773, the English writer Samuel Johnson visited the Hebrides, or Western Isles, off the West coast of Scotland along with his friend, the Scotsman James Boswell, and his black servant Joseph. Staying with a series of hosts, including elderly Jacobite heroine Flora McDonald, Johnson and Boswell encounter traditional Scottish hospitality at first-hand, all the time arguing about politics (and in Boswell's case losing his head over every pretty woman he meets). The trip resulted in two books, Boswell's "Journal of a Tour to the Hebrides" (1785), and Johnsons "A Journey to the Western Islands of Scotland" (1775). This BBC production from 1993 features the acting talents of John Sessions, Robbie Coltrane and Leo Sho-Silva, with cameos from Celia Imrie and Ian Dury.
