BBFC Consumer Advice Mild bad language.

The true story of the cargo ship SS Politician running aground off the coast of Eiriskay in 1941, releasing its cargo of whisky, has been immortalised in several books, plays, musicals, TV documentaries and most notably in the iconic and highly acclaimed Ealing classic Whisky Galore. The story relates to the battle between the Excise Men and the locals while trying to salvage a ship that was stranded off the Western Isles of Scotland, during Word war II, with a lucrative amber cargo on board, “that of 50,000 cases of Whisky”. The shipwreck and its cargo was like manna from heaven to the Islanders, as due to rationing the island was totally dry and without any type of alcohol, which some would say is part of the life blood of the Scottish Islands!
