And the old brass bed they bought together

This was filmed at Borrowmeadow farm, by the river Forth, near Stirling.

I first filmed at Borrowmeadow in May 2015. Yesterday, 22 June 2018, I returned. In time in-between it has lost its roof.

Borrowmeadow is an ancient farm but its future is in peril.

This wee film begins with an interview with Judith Kerr, author of ‘The Tiger Who Came to Tea’

The song ‘No more I love you’s’ is performed and sung by ‘Daniel versus the world’. I guess that Daniel is not aware that I have used his beautiful You Tube cover a number of times in my films. I feel his interpretation of this song even more than the original.

I have borrowed some of my favourite words – a selection of a selection of a selection, if you like – from the poems of Iain Banks, Sara Baume, David Szalay, Tomas Tranströmer, Raymond Tallis and Robert Louis Stevenson.

This film is for Sian.
