Glasgow Girls is a specially commissioned musical drama for BBC Three that tells the inspirational true story of a group of schoolgirls whose petition to save their friend from deportation inspired a movement which would eventually help change immigration practices in Scotland.

The story of the girls' campaign was originally captured in an Amnesty International award-winning BBC Scotland documentary in 2005 and has since inspired a National Theatre for Scotland musical, directed by Cora Bissett and written by David Greig. The BBC film is a new version of the Glasgow Girls story brought to life by a talented cast, with contemporary musical moments enhancing the story and themes.

Produced by Minnow Films, Glasgow Girls shot in Glasgow in Spring 2014 and was broadcast on BBC Three in July 2014.
