(March 2007)

The remarkable life story of the former Bay City Roller, Stuart 'Woody' Wood.

Stuart (at 16) was a member of The Bay City Rollers, at one point during the 1970s arguably the world's biggest band, with a reputed 120 million album sales and fan hysteria likened to Beatlemania.

Yet by 21 Stuart's career as a Roller was over, having barely received a penny in royalties. After surviving many years in the wilderness and experiencing at times extreme hardship, he became a leading producer of Celtic music, college lecturer and record company executive with one of Scotland's fastest growing labels.

Containing never before seen unique 8mm footage of Stuart before and during the peak of his fame with the Rollers, Rollercoaster is an inspiring but cautionary tale of the realities of stardom and the entertainment business.
