Celebrating 60 years of television in Scotland, a look at Scotland's history of great television journalism. From reporter Fyfe Robertson's stylish reports in a trilby on horseback for Tonight, to Duncan Campbell's 1985 Secret Society episode - The Zircon
Affair - which landed the BBC in trouble with the government. Plus Kirsty Wark's Thatcher interview, coverage of the trio of tragedies that struck Scotland: Lockerbie, Piper Alpha and Dunblane, and the more recently Panorama investigation Britain's Homecare Scandal.
