Stories that Make Scotland
Over the past decade we’ve spent a great deal of time thinking about Scotland’s constitutional future. This year we focus more on our nation’s rich, complex, troublesome past and the things that make it such a fascinating place to live right now. Some of this country’s most prominent thinkers join the conversation, including Sir Tom Devine with a new perspective on the Scottish Clearances, and Kerry Hudson, who looks at poverty in some of the country’s most deprived towns. We also mark 20 years since the opening of the new Scottish Parliament, re-examine Scotland’s role in the Caribbean, and present performances of the Iolaire Tragedy and a celebration of Hamish Henderson.
