The Quest for Bannockburn comes to BBC Two

01 Jun 2014

700 years after one of the most significant conflicts in British history, Neil Oliver and Tony Pollard go in search of both the real and imagined Battle of Bannockburn.

With the help of the country’s greatest minds, 3D computer generated graphics and a good old fashioned spade - they’ll chart the final nail-biting 48 hours and re-create the landscape and environment that determined this seismic moment in British history.

The show will air on BBC Two Scotland on 2 and 9 June, and features several scenes shot at the Battlefield and new Visitor Centre. Property Manager Scott McMaster and Trust Head of Archaeology Derek Alexander are among the contributors and there's also a cameo appearance from Battlemaster Ned.
