Scotland's story – fact and fiction
Scotland has a colourful and varied history. As the country which invented the historical novel, it has inspired a rich vein of fiction, stretching from the 'Waverley' novels to 'Outlander,' but much of the country’s factual stories remain untold. Alex talks to Andrew MacLeod and Murray Armstrong, authors of two new books, one a fantasy novel set in 18th-century Edinburgh and one on Scotland’s first struggle for democracy, the 'Radical Wars' of 1820.
