Scotland : The Promised Land ep 3 The Cultural Revolution 

Honoured to contribute to this wonderful episode on Scotland’s Cultural Revolution in the years following the First World War. Discussing the pressures on aspirational Scots to lose their accent for an RP delivery.

Scotland – The Promised Land 

Catch the last episode of this landmark series on Wednesday at 9, on BBC TWO Scotland – this week looking at Scotland’s Cultural Revolution after WW1. A wonderful insight into the Scottish Renaissance, MacDiarmid and the artistic community of Montrose. Also, some contribution from me on the Scottish accent and RP aspirations at that time.
