Product description

Edinburgh Through The Ages is presented by one of the legends of Edinburgh's cultural scene, Richard De Marco.

The programme takes the viewer on an historical and artistic journey around Scotland's great capital city. Starting with the development of the city as a bronze age settlement on the castle rock and through the dangerous political climate of the 16th century, this DVD also shows how the city came of age during the Scottish enlightenment, becoming a hotbed of artistic and philosophical achievement as figures such as Allen Ramsey Jr. and intellectuals like David Hume won it the title "The Athens Of The North"

Edinburgh has also bequeathed more than its fair share of scientific inventions on the world, from the pneumatic tyre to the television and the Forth Bridge, which holds the title of the greatest engineering achievement of its time.

This DVD examines the huge architectural legacy of a city that moved American President Thomas Jefferson to describe its new town as one of the wonders of the age.

The sporting life of the city is also examined, from the great rivalry between Hibbs and Hearts to the hallowed turf of Murrayfield rugby fortress, as well as the legacy of having held two commonwealth games.

Richard Demarco's own unique insights and astonishing knowledge of his home town will reveal the heart and soul of this most complex and beautiful of capital cities.
