Modern visitors may see Scotland as simply the beautiful northern countryside of Great Britain, not realizing the complicated, violent history predating the 1706 Treaty of Union. This series, based on the latest historical research, charts Scotland's distinct history and character, both before and since 1706, from leaders Robert Bruce, William Wallace, and Mary Queen of Scots through industrial decline to "Project Scotland".

Amazing Series

Comments about PBS A History of Scotland DVD:

I love Scotland and I love history, what more could I ask for? Neil Oliver does an excellent job narrating this 10-part series, providing just the right level of detail to make each topic interesting without getting bogged down. He certainly has a lot of energy, he practically never stops moving (I get winded just watching him stride up mountain after mountain)!
If you love of Scotland and want to learn more about her history then you owe it to yourself to buy this set of DVDs.

Missing disk

Comments about PBS A History of Scotland DVD:

Was excited to receive History of Scotland, because I wanted to watch it while recovering from cancer surgery recently. I was enjoying all of it and suddenly when I put the last disk in I was watching "How the Celts saved Britain". The story of Scotland ended, what happened? I realized that I was missing disk 5 of the set. Don't know how to get the 5th disk now so I can finish watching the series. Will have to check in to it. If I can't get it, then I've wasted money on series. Bummer.

Very good series, one bad disk

Comments about PBS A History of Scotland DVD:

I made this purchase because a friend asked me why Culloden was such a big deal to the Scots (!!!). I thought this series would be a great way to share the whole History of Scotland with them. Imagine my disappointment when the one episode, the one chapter, which covered the events leading up to The Battle, was the one bad, unplayable sector in the set. Otherwise, I recommend this series for any who want to know more about the Scots than just that they were brave.
