EDINBURGH THROUGH THE AGES DVD: Edinburgh Through The Ages is presented by one of the legends of Edinburgh s cultural scene, Richard De Marco. The programme takes the viewer on an historical and artistic journey around Scotland s great capital city. Starting with the development of the city as a bronze age settlement on the castle rock and through the dangerous political climate of the 16th century. Edinburgh has also bequeathed more than its fair share of scientific inventions on the world, from the pneumatic tyre to the television and the Forth Bridge, which holds the title of the greatest engineering achievement of its time. This DVD examines the huge architectural legacy of a city that moved American President Thomas Jefferson to describe its new town as one of the wonders of the age. The sporting life of the city is also examined, from the great rivalry between Hibbs and Hearts to the hallowed turf of Murrayfield rugby fortress, as well as the legacy of having held two commonwealth games. Richard Demarco s own unique insights and astonishing knowledge of his home town will reveal the heart and soul of this most complex and beautiful of capital cities. LITTLE BOOK OF EDINBURGH: Edinburgh is the capital city of Scotland, situated in Lothian on the southern shore of the Firth of Forth, with a population of some 500,00 people. Home to many national institutions such as the Scottish Parliament, the National Museum of Scotland, the National Library of Scotland and the Scottish National Gallery, it is now also the biggest financial centre in the UK after London. Edinburgh has rich associations with the past and has hundreds of historic buildings including Edinburgh Castle, Holyrood Palace, the churches of St. Giles, Greyfriars and the Canongate and an extensive Georgian New Town built in the 18th century. But it s not just history and culture that attracts more than one million overseas visitors every year, as the city has vibrant social and sporting scenes and an annual calendar of world-renowned events. This little book paints an affectionate portrait of one of the most popular cities in the world, and the pride of Scotland.
