The ballads of the Scottish Border country are more than just folk songs they are the history of a people. Families fought for power along the Border, and the ballads have preserved their names and deeds. The battles have long passed, but, as this film shows, the country and the pattern of life stays much the same. The ballads, too, are as soul-stirring as ever.
