Oh Gavin, thank you so much! I was desperate to see this when it first aired over Xmas, but we were infested with relatives both times and it turned out not to be on iPlayer then (leading to much outrage on my part). So I've just watched it - a very good summary of post-war anti-Nat jiggery-pawkery, but the last fifteen minutes are dynamite, and should be compulsory viewing. Alex Salmond should have them translated into English and run them as a party-political broadcast. I'd never heard about the plan to monkey with the territorial waters border before. It made my blood boil - it was like watching some caricature of scheming medieval barons - I kept expecting it to cut away to a Sheriff of Nottingham type character cackling and rubbing his hands with glee at swindling the Scots! :-)

You're welcome, and I'm pleased it was of interest.

When the BBC covers something that doesn't usually get much attention in the media - for whatever reason that may be! - I figure it's worth passing on.
