Product Description

Alistair Moffat and Eric Robson explore the history, folklore, politics and landscape of the Scottish/English border, which for five centuries was the most lawless place in Britain, torn apart by war and Reiving. From the Solway across to the North Sea, the men travel the 105-mile distance from East coast to West, discovering along the way why the border took almost 1800 years to define and why it is such a significant line on today's maps.

Format: DVD
No, this isn't a remake of the Johnny Cash story. In a self-described "grumpy old men tour," Brit Eric Robson and Scot Alastair Moffat set out on a 105-mile exploration of the border between England and Scotland in an effort to discover both what unites and what separates the people who live in either side of the line, and also to explore "its history and folklore, politics and landscape." In the process, they traverse a long-disputed frontier that was frequently as dangerous as the Balkans and that in some ways resembled Al Capone's Chicago--except that the bandits "were not quite so well-dressed."

The walks begins in the west at Sark Foot on the Solway, passes through the once-wild "Debatable Land," past Bloody Bush and Kielder, through the country of the Cheviots, and, after following the River Tweed, ends at Berwick in the east. Along the way, Robson, the well-known writer, broadcaster, and fellwalker, and Moffat, a journalist and author and the rector of the University of St. Andrews, talk to borderers both English and Scottish to get a sense both of what divides and what unites those who live in this distinctive and remote region. They conclude that despite very real linguistic and cultural differences, both the English and the Scots who populate the border area have much more in common with each other than they do with their fellow countrymen--and the bureaucrats--in London or Edinburgh. That's important to keep in mind, given that Scottish secession from the "United" Kingdom is once again a very real possibility, with roughly a third of both the English and the Scottish peoples favoring independence in advance of the upcoming referendum.
