Culloden is a 1964 docudrama written and directed by Peter Watkins for BBC TV. It portrays the 1746 Battle of Culloden that resulted within the British Military’s destruction of the Scottish Jacobite rebellion and, within the phrases of the narrator, “tore aside without end the clan system of the Scottish Highlands”. Described in its opening credit as “an account of one of the crucial mishandled and brutal battles ever fought in Britain”, Culloden was hailed as a breakthrough for its cinematography in addition to its use of non-professional actors and its presentation of an historic occasion within the type of recent TV conflict reporting. The movie was based mostly on John Prebble’s examine of the battle.
