Scots wha hae!
Verified purchase
I am deeply devoted to my roots and heritage, Scotland playing heavily into my heritage. This series is well done and the host is Scottish and i love a Scottish brogue! He really knows his history and I really appreciated a Scot was talking about Scotland. IF you are into history and genealogy, you will enjoy this.

NOT for US players
Verified purchase
Love Neil Oliver and his history programs and books, but when this one arrived I realized it cannot be played in the US. Disappointed because Amazon is usually very good about warnings when DVDs are incompatible. Returned for refund.

Take It With a Grain of Salt
Verified purchase
Kind of "meh". Fun to watch but the presenter's "facts" are tainted with make-believe - what the Scots refer to as Brigadoon-ish. Clans were a Highland and Irish phenomena, but the Lowland families are incessantly referred to as clans, and that is just the beginning of the errors.

Great Scottish history
Verified purchase
One of my ancestors is featured briefly in this 3 part documentary. I've read the history many times, but this was very visual and brought it to life.
