The Flying Scotsman – DVD

Based on a remarkable true story The Flying Scotsman is a heart-warming and compelling ... more

film which follows the turbulent life of cyclist
Graeme Obree who as an unemployed amateur broke
the World One Hour record on a bike of his own
revolutionary design constructed out of scrap
metal and old washing machine parts. Simply as a
study of courage endurance and ingenuity Obree's
story is remarkable enough - but it's also the
tale of a man haunted by depression and a fierce
mistrust of authority whose struggle to overcome
his own demons was at least as courageous as his
exploits inside the velodrome.

Quality broadsheet with an alternative capital perspective

AdvantagesReliably informative and entertaining

DisadvantagesHaving to pay for the printed version perhaps?

"...impartiality, firmness and independence…’ [From the prospectus of the Scotsman, 30 November 1816] Not so much a newspaper, more a way of life? The Scotsman is not so much a ‘local’ Scottish newspaper, more an established broadsheet based in the Scottish capital. Published from Holyrood in Edinburgh, close to the Parliament building, its perspective may be Scottish but its coverage is worldwide, and it’s now widely accessible. ..." Read review

The Scottish Newspaper to read Review with images

AdvantagesCheap, Everything you want from a newspaper

DisadvantagesCan be biased at times

"...2 sister publications which is the Evening News (for Edinburgh) and the Scotland on Sunday which is the big weekly round up of all the stories. **History** The Scotsman was launched in 1817 by Charles MacClaren and William Ritchie. Based in Edinburgh, they wanted to make a paper that was just for Scotland. It started out at 1d (a shilling) and had a circulation of 6,000 copies. By the 1900's it really started to pick up even though it was really ..." Read review

AdvantagesVery well written

DisadvantagesNone

"...week for Scotland this week. The announcement of huge job losses due to the closure of the Motorola mobile phone plant was the main news story but there has also been a proposed merger for The Bank Of Scotland with the Halifax plc. Add to this continuing controversy over the development of tourism for Scotland and Foot and Mouth news and there is a lot to report. In sport Celtic have been presented with the SPL championship trophy whilst only 3 members ..." Read review

A heritage declined

AdvantagesGood sports reporting

DisadvantagesStrong anti-European and political bias

"...(and often acerbic) comment on the affairs of Scotland, the UK and the world in general. It was staffed by well-known journalists, many pre-eminent in their fields. Now, sadly (very sadly) the standard of journalism is thin, the factual reporting is still good, but the strong political bias (which increases as a General Election looms) is becoming an irritant. While it may be (repeat MAY be) acceptable for a newspaper to have strong opinions for ..." Read review
