"Scotland contributed proportionately more to the Republican cause than any other country in the world...."
"... the series takes archivist Daniel Gray to revisit some of the major battlefields where these men's friends and colleagues still lie buried. Daniel's book Homage to Caledonia reveals how gripped the Scottish public were by the war in Spain and why so many were moved to join the conflict. He takes the opportunity to get the Spanish perspective on this shocking chapter in the country's history. Only now, more than 30 years after Franco died, are the Spanish beginning to talk freely about this dark period in the country' history." STV
