This book places Grierson's work with the GPO film unit, the National Film Board of Canada, UNESCO and Scottish Television in the context of a full life which began in 1898 in the home of a country headmaster in Scotland and included service in World War One and education in Glasgow University. The author knew Grierson from 1930 and assesses his contribution to cinema and the art of communication.
