Really, who else ;-)?

BBC announcers generally use RP, and I have no difficulty at all understanding them. Similarly, I understood all the dialogue in the movie “Love Actually”, which is basically all RP. Now how about a strong Scottish accent? Has anyone else seen one of my favorite movies, “Gregory’s Girl”? You can listen to either in the original dialogue or a dubbed version that’s a lot easier to understand.
