BBC Two Programmes - Scotland Schedule for Sunday 7 December 200822.50The New 10 CommandmentsFilmmakers and artists look at Scotland through the prism of human rights.BBC Programmes - The New 10 Commandments07 Dec 2008' date=' 22:50 on BBC Two (Scotland only)A uniquely Scottish documentary that brings together Oscar, Turner prize and Bafta winners to look at Scotland through the prism of human rights.Marking the 60th anniversary of the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights, filmmakers and artists such as Tilda Swinton, Irvine Welsh and Douglas Gordon each tackle a 'new commandment'.Exploring such issues as torture, slavery, or the freedoms of thought and assembly, the resulting film is a powerful, passionate and surprisingly humorous artistic collaboration that gives intimate meaning to human rights in Scotland.[/quote']The world premiere of The New Ten Commandments was this year at the Edinburgh International Film Festival.Those standing up for human rights in Scotland appearing in the different chapters of the programme include -Peter Dow's republican protest against the Queen at HolyroodAamer Anwar, lawyer, defending a contempt of court chargeJim Swire, campaigning on Lockerbie Pan Am flight 103 bombingAnti-slavery-sex-trafficking, Suicides-concerned and Asylum-seekers campaignersAlso featuringKenny Richey liberated from death-row. Scotland's 20 years he missed Enhanced interrogation techniques - the sheep's perspectiveA narrated comic about a man who liked to ride his bike in privateThespian musingsFollow the count-down to the TV broadcast of The New Ten Commandments on Scottish Republican News.Aberdeen's local hero goes national!Whereas viewers in England and Northern Ireland will see Graham Norton Uncut and then Heroes, in Scotland those programmes are delayed by 100 minutes to make room for the New Ten Commandments featuring real-life Scottish heroes but with no special powers I am sorry to say.The chapter I am in is the first 10 minutes of the programme so be sure to set your VCR/DVDR/DVR/PVR or whatever to record the programme from maybe 22.49 or something in case the timing is out.You won't be able to come home from the pub at closing time (if that is 11pm?), switch the TV on and expect to see me on TV because by the time 11pm comes I will be gone from BBC2 Scotland - so don't miss me - Aberdeen's very own local hero - going national!Worth watching!
