    For the second time in two days I find myself praising the Beeb for their choice of programming.

    I missed 'A History of Scotland' the first time round but having seen it being repeated I bought the boxset for my Dad. We're English but he loves Scotland.

    I've since watched the boxset and can safely say that this is the quality of production I expect from the BBC. I find Neil Oliver's enthusiasm for any subject he talks about is very contagious. The settings and research are fantastic!

    The program also acts as a brilliant tourist attraction for Scotland, the scenery used is breath-taking.

    Once again well done BBC!

    Product of the self obsessed BBC Scotland no doubt. Recent programme about the fall of Singapore disgustingly recorded only scottish soldiers as being there

    Why would it include information on other regiments in the area? smiley - erm

    Don't see how that's relevant to the topic starter's post - a History of Scotland was interesting indeed.
    I was happy to see it repeated when last week Saturday I was sick at home again, trying to get up but being too weak. Dragged myself to the sofa, switched on the telly and got greeted by a bright eyed Neil Oliver telling me about the history of Scotland. Couldn't think of a better way to start the day as it were.
    Didn't pick up as much as I wanted - comes with being ill, not with Mr Oliver - but thought it was really good.
