In the first episode of a new series, Jenny and Annie have a look at the Battle of Culloden, and the background politics that lead up to it.

One of the most mythologised conflicts of all time, we try to piece together why so many raised their weapons to fight for Bonnie Prince Charlie. Now managed by the National Trust, Culloden Battlefield is of huge significance to Scottish history.
