Rebellion: The Stuarts In Exile

300 years after the Jacobites launched one of British history’s most audacious and longest running rebellions, this two-part special sheds new light on the political, military and cultural threat that the Jacobites posed to the embryonic British state.

It shows the passion, cunning and bravery with which they prosecuted their cause, how great was their support at the time, and how their plot to redefine Britain would overshadow the United Kingdom for decades to come.

Now, at time when issues of union, independence and national identity have never been so important to British politics, and beyond, Rebellion: the Stuarts in Exile, is highly relevant to politics today.
