The Museums That Make Us: The National Museum of Scotland

Series 1, episode 16

Neil MacGregor begins a week visiting national museums in Edinburgh, where a Saltire and King's colours from the battle of Culloden describe the complexity of Scottish identity. Neil is joined by fellow Scot and former soldier JJ Chalmers to hear the story behind the survival of the two flags, and the complex histories that make simple national identity in Scotland so fraught, even today
