100 Things we learned from film

Week two of Listener request month and it's Paul from SP Film Viewers turn to pick.

We take a deep dive in to Glasgow Suburbs, Edinburgh Castle, American Oak casks and the word CUNT!

The Angels' Share is a 2012 comedy-drama film directed by Ken Loach and starring Paul Brannigan, John Henshaw, and William Ruane. Set in Glasgow, Scotland, it tells the story of a young father who narrowly avoids a prison sentence. He is determined to turn over a new leaf and when he and his friends from the same community payback group visit a whisky distillery, a route to a new life becomes apparent. The title is from "the angels' share", a term for the portion (share) of a whisky's volume that is lost to evaporation during aging in oak barrels.
