This week’s programme from batemanbroadcasting brings two contrasting characters together. The academic, author and broadcaster Professor Murray Pittock of Glasgow University has a life-long interest in the national question and wrote The Road to Independence? which is a lively account of the origins of the movement and which he updated ahead of the referendum. He is an authority on the constitutional question with unrivalled understanding of the history and culture of home rule. He has keen insights into the progress of the campaign and is both optimistic and critical of aspects. His series on Radio Four dealing with the story of the movement was a critical success. His analysis is invaluable.
He is joined by Kate of Caskie of Women for Independence, as lively a voice as you’ll hear and whose zest is a reminder that politics need not be as dull as Better Together would like.
