Pipe Bands have come from Australia, Canada, England, France, Ireland, New Zealand, Spain, United States and of course Scotland to march through the city in aid of Marie Curie Cancer Care. The film reveals the excitment of the occasion and is full of humorous moments. Top Pipe Bands include Scottish Power, Strathclyde Police and the entire contingent from the Edinburgh Military Tattoo. (Filmed in Widescreen)
Bonus 1: 20 minutes of extra footage from the Edinburgh Piping festival. A chance to see all those that took part as well as the out-takes.
2nd Feature Film: A Capital Regiment. This TV film is a fascinating insight into British Military pageantry and the presentation of colours to the London Regiment by HRH Prince Andrew, Colonel in Chief of the Royal Irish Regiment. The film startes with the preparations to what is obviously a very special day for the participants and culminates in a spectacular parade. Humour, archive, and great music make this a pleasure to watch. Bands on Parade include The Pipes and Drums of the famous London Scottish Regiment, The London Irish Rifles and the Military Band of the Queen’s Division.
Bonus 2: Out takes of the Band and Pipers of the Royal Irish Regiment
Bonus 3: This is the official film festival entry of When the Pipers Play title song that went on to win the a Music Video Award. This version differs slightly from the film and features Isla St Clair and the Massed Pipers of the Scottish Regiments
