It is unusual for Scottish History Online to promote
any commercial organisation in such a way as this but the Battle of Culloden
(1746) and the aftermath by Peter Watkins is exceptional!!
Filmed in a documentary style manner and broadcast
by the BBC in December 1964 SHO feel, it portrays a fairly accurate account
of the conflict. The narration in the way of a news report by a television
crew, gives an added feel and good historical account of the battle and the
following genocide committed in the Highlands by British government troops.
