A Real Treat
I really enjoyed Neil Oliver's new History of Scotland (BBC2) this evening. Oliver's enthusiasm and genuine passion for his subject are infectious. As well as giving a lively account of Scotland's turbulent past, Oliver's account is packed with sublime images of Scottish scenery. Tonight's programme was specially interesting for me as Oliver visited some of the places I've seen on holiday in previous years: Dunadd fort, the island of Iona and Dunnottar Castle. I can't wait for the next instalment.
