Summary
In ten one-hour episodes, this series charts the birth and growth of the Scottish nation, bringing a fresh perspective to Scotland's past and challenging many of the perceived notions of Scottish history. With award-winning cinematography and engaging narrative, the series tells of battles and allegiances, political intrigue, and religious conflict. Includes information on William Wallace, Robert the Bruce, the Stuart lineage, Culloden, John Witherspoon (signatory of the American Declaration of Independence), Sir Walter Scott, and Scotland in the 20th century. Disc 5, How the Celts saved Britain, includes biographical information on St. Patrick
