Tam Dalyell to introduce Tony Benn documentary at the Hippodrome Bo’ness

Veteran parliamentarian, former Labour MP for Bo’ness and original poser of the ‘West Lothian Question’ Tam Dalyell will attend the Hippodrome Bo’ness on Saturday 15th November at 14:30 to introduce a special screening of the new documentary about his friend and colleague, the late Tony Benn.

Adrian Mahoney, Spokesman for Culture, Leisure and Tourismsaid:

“It is a very great pleasure to be welcoming Tam Dalyell to the Hippodrome to introduce this film.  Tam served alongside Tony Benn as a parliamentary colleague for many years and new him personally.  It’s great that Tam has agreed to join us after the screening as well, to take part in a question and answer session, when he will be able to offer more personal insights into the career of the longest serving Labour MP in history.”

The film is a deeply personal documentary about the life of Tony Benn which won the coveted Audience Award at the Edinburgh Film Festival.  A frank, candid and sometimes painful exploration of love, loss, hope, fears and death this portrait of a British national treasure paints a very human face behind the political persona and bears witness to major social and political upheavals and events of a generation.

Patrons at the Hippodrome on the Saturday 15th can enjoy the festivities in the town which will be filled with music & fun in Market Square with the Christmas lights switch on at 16:00.

‘Tony Benn: Will and Testament’ (12A) screens at the Hippodrome Bo’ness on Saturday 15th November at 14:30 with an introduction by Tam Dalyell, followed by Q&A.  Additional screenings of the film only on Monday 17 November at 11:00 and Thursday 20th November at 19:30.
