Dr. Peverley with MS Hunter 400

On 3rd March Dr. Sarah Peverley from Liverpool University and a crew from BBC Scotland filmed with our MS Hunter 400.

In the film, made for the BBC Arts online service, she examines John Hardyng’s Chronicle and Anglo-Scottish relations,  highlighting specific passages in the manuscript which pertain to a proposed “invasion plan” that Hardyng had drafted while on spy missions to Scotland on behalf of the English monarch.  The resulting film is now online at http://www.bbc.co.uk/arts/0/26795237
