Richard Purden takes a fresh look at Celtic's relationship with individuals and institutions who have had made a unifying and cohesive impact on the club, its support and the team.Purden talks to a selection of supporters, ex-players (Henrik Larsson, John Hartson, Pierre van Hooijdonk, Pat Stanton), managers (Martin O'Neil, Neil Lennon) and Celtic insiders (Matt McGlone, Willie Haughey), while travelling to a number of historical locations. Purden discusses Celtic in the context of faith, politics and identity with cultural figures including actors (Peter Mullan, Martin Compston), screen-writers (Paul Laverty), troubadours (Noel Gallagher and Shane MacGowan) and politicians (Jim Murphy and George Galloway), who take us on a Celtic odyssey, underlining why this team from Glasgow's East End personify a way of life.
