In the spring of 1994, Billy Connolly began a 40 show tour of his native land. This seven part series allowed Billy to give us his personal interpretation of the sights and sounds of Scotland.
Also included were some new commissioned music by Billy Connolly, Ralph McTell and Graham Preskett. Starting with the hustle and bustle of Glasgow, his home town, Billy leads us through rolling lowland farmland to Highland tundra, to the secluded islands of Orkney and Shetland.
Billy knows every town and every bend in the road - in his career he has played to huge stadia and small church halls. and every place Billy plays on the tour is a sell-out. Billy shows us the places he lived and visited during his life, as well as a few places he always wanted to see.
Most of the major monuments in Scotland are visited, as well as chats and chance meetings with people from every walk of life. Interspersed with footage from many of the concerts, the programme is funny as well as informative. Billy fills in the gaps with witty and revealing autobiographical snippets, and the usual anecdotes.
Two bites of Billy Connolly contains a magical mixture of Billy’s complete award winning BBC1 television series “World Tour of Scotland” in which Billy chronicles his personal journey through his native Scotland and Billy’s hilarious previously unavailable concert “Live at the Usher Hall, Edinburgh” In a rare combination, of almost four hours of beauty and hilarity, Billy Connolly demonstrates why he is Britain’s best loved comedian.
