The Elephant's Graveyard (1976)

Dir. John Mackenzie / BBC / UK / Drama / Colour / 50m

Originally broadcast as part of the BBC's Play for Today series in 1976, this poignant story stars Jon Morrison as Bunny, who as far as his wife knows is gainfully employed as a postman but in reality spends his days walking the Scottish hills and wondering why he feels so unable to work and to live a 'normal' life. One day he happens upon fellow walker Jody (Billy Connolly), and the two strike up a rapport. The two men have much in common, and a bittersweet tale ensues.
