Twelve films from different parts of the UK which explore people's sense of identity. 7: Kelso
Framed by the Tweed and Teviot rivers and the Border Hills, Kelso and its people nestle gently in the richness of the soil. Border feuds are remembered with a peacefulness which mirrors the quiet passage of their most famous of salmon rivers. Neither a quiet nor a busy place. Scottish but not Nationalist. Everything has its time, every person his place.
Producer KEN LITTLE
