Sean Connery - filmed highlights

On the day of his 78th birthday, 25 August 2008, Edinburgh-born film icon Sean Connery chats with his friend and co-author Murray Grigor about a range of subjects including his much-anticipated book Being A Scot. The event proved to be the fastest-selling in the Book Festival's 25 year history - if you didn't manage to get a ticket at the time, you can see some filmed highlights here. The event is chaired by Sheena McDonald.
