A History of Scotland

Neil Oliver explores the role played by the Church during Robert the Bruce's 22-year campaign to secure Scottish independence, and how its repeated propaganda campaigns for the cause at home and abroad eventually bore fruit. The programme also examines how the 1320 Declaration of Arbroath ultimately persuaded the Pope to recognise the country as an independent nation.
