• A highly entertaining and informative five part series on various aspects of Scottish history.

    James Macpherson is wonderful as D.I. Scot - a modern day detective looking into a number of events and dastardly deeds which shaped Scotland. He's both a good interviewer in the more serious parts of the episodes, and amusing as the detective on the case!

    He's assisted in his quest by some experts in the field and access to key sites and historical documents. There are also some dramatisations of events and characters from Scotland's past.

    While many history documentaries can be a bit dry and academic this is anything but that. Highly recommended even if you're not a keen history buff! (but it would be a great resource for secondary school teachers - both on Scottish history and methodology in historical research)
