Donald Trump's Golf War

Documentary following the epic battle of American billionaire Donald Trump to build 'the greatest golf course in the world' on a beautiful, protected stretch of coastline in the north-east of Scotland.

When Trump announces bold plans for two golf courses, private houses and a five-star hotel, not everyone welcomes him with open arms. Protestors find an unlikely local hero in farmer Michael Forbes. His 22-acre property is surrounded on all sides by prime Trump real estate, yet the stubborn local farmer is not selling.

Featuring five years of exclusive interviews with Trump and his family, the programme tells the story of this controversial billion-pound development from first announcement to the moment the diggers roll.
