PBS EXPLORES THE JACOBITES

Friday, February 17th, 2023

Some three centuries ago, the Jacobites embarked upon one of the most audacious rebellions in British history. Two-part documentary REBELLION: THE STUARTS IN EXILE (Monday 20th, 7.15pm) sees Dr Clare Jackson shedding new light on the threat – political, military and cultural – posed by the rebels to what was then the embryonic British state. Also explored are the wider European dimensions of a campaign culminating in Bonnie Prince Charlie’s 1745 defeat at Culloden, along with a look at its contemporary relevance.
Dr Jackson also reveals why so many otherwise law-abiding Scots and English were ready to support the Stuarts, and examines how the new Protestant Hanoverian regime hung by a thread, with the monarchs struggling to impose their authority on often hostile and anti-European subjects.
