That Was The Year That Was: The Best Of 2020 Podcasts – Films…

Updated: May 7, 2021

In the year when cinemas were closed for most of it, and film release schedules were pushed back to who knows when, you might think it would be tough to talk about the Best Films of 2020 for any length of time.

Well think again, as Chris Ward, Wesley Shearer, and Ali reunite for their annual chat about their favourite movies of the past 12 months.

Picking five each, they share their enthusiasm for films you may have missed first time around, and we’re sure you’ll find something to tickle your fancy.

They talk about finding films during lockdown, this year’s Glasgow Film Festival and Short Film Festival, the best of TV, and mention favourite directors, documentaries, new drama, short films, the pros and cons of the move from cinemas to home viewing, and a whole lot more.

If you are new to the Scots Whay Hae! podcast there is quite a substantial back-catalogue for you to discover. If you aren’t yet a subscriber you can do so, (or simply listen) at iTunes, on Podbean, with Spotify, by RSS (but you’ll need to have an RSS reader to do so) or on MixCloud.
