Rabbies Bairns (231Mb filesize) is a 2003 production by Lion Television Scotland for BBC Scotland shown on the BBC on Burns Night in 2004. This 25 minute documentary follows the fortunes of several competitors as they prepare for the Competition, and provides context to the competitors backgrounds.


In 2016, Lewis O' Neil, a 5th-year pupil at St Mungo's Academy, agreed to produce a video to provide insight into the Competition and what it means for the competitors and community "in their own words". The video mixes rehearsals, performances, and interviews with teachers, competitors past and present, and also captures the excitement and "organised chaos" of competition night. Lewis has produced two versions of his video - a full version (17min length, 1,533Mb filesize) and short version (7min length, 646Mb filesize). The Club remains extremely grateful to Lewis for his superb efforts, and the short version is regularly shown at the Club's Anniversary Dinner.
