Thatcher and the Scots

First shown in 2009, this documentary asks 'Is Margaret Thatcher the mother of the Scottish Parliament?

In 'Thatcher and the Scots', BBC World Affairs Correspondent, Allan Little, looks back at the tumultuous Thatcher years, and assesses the effect they had on Scotland.

The programme also examines the personal, human relationship between Margaret Thatcher and Scotland. Why did she become the subject of so much bile? And what does that say about the Scots and their attitudes?

With superb archive film, and in-depth interviews with two of her Scottish Secretaries, her political opponents, leading historians, and those who lived through and reported on the Thatcher years, the programme is the definitive account of the effect Thatcherism had on Scotland.
