Scotland's Greatest Warrior

Kevin McKenna - The Observer: "One of the highlights of last month's entire television output was a delightful and erudite one-off gem that went out on BBC4 and was commissioned, created and delivered in Scotland. It ought to have reminded BBC Scotland chiefs at Pacific Quay just how dramatic, vibrant and vivid is our own nation's historical narrative. Scotland's Greatest Warrior, the inspirational story of Jamie Graham, the 1st Marquis of Montrose, a man whose life and achievements were genuinely noble, heroic and Scottish, was beautifully narrated by Professor Ted Cowan, director of Glasgow University's Dumfries campus."
