The BBC is currently informing on BBC Scotland - but is not broadcasting this south of this border. However I recently discovered that, extremely sensobly, all the programmes are actually accessible to most of us who are able to access BBC iPlayer.
I haven't watched them all as yet nevertheless the small I seen advise they are all going to be fascinating. I'm 'flying blind' with regards to the images i have included into for this post and may also change them when I've viewed most of the programmes.
