The dramatic story of Scotland - by charismatic television historian, Neil Oliver. Scotland is one of the oldest countries in the world with a vivid and diverse past. Yet the stories and figures that dominate Scottish history - tales of failure, submission, thwarted ambition and tragedy - often badly serve this great nation, overshadowing the rich tapestry of her intricate past. Historian Neil Oliver presents a compelling new portrait of Scottish history, peppered with action, high drama and centuries of turbulence that have helped to shape modern Scotland. Along the way, he takes in iconic landmarks and historic architecture; debunks myths surrounding Scotland's famous sons; recalls forgotten battles; charts the growth of patriotism; and explores recent political developments, capturing Scotland's sense of identity and celebrating her place in the wider world.

Anticipating the end of the family vacation era, we packed up Rick Steves style and traveled to Great Britain. There we encountered the Full English Breakfast, lots of castles, churches, and shrines. We were never in any danger except while on the small roads in Wales. Nothing was lost, aside from our appetite for eggs. No one fell ill, but we neared starvation on our first day as we tried to understand the British restaurant business hours. Join us as we 'Mind the Gap' on the Tube and visit Scotland without eating haggis.
