Full Product Description

In this companion to the BBC Scotland series of the same name, Harry Reid's personal account of the Scottish press reveals a fascinating world of larger-than-life characters, scoops and rivalries. Charlie Chaplin, Muhammed Ali and Margaret Thatcher are just a few of the names that feature in this account. The author's insights come from a lifetime steeped in Scottish newspaper journalism and a never-ending fascination with Scottish history.

The book exposes how the press has dealt with the great pillars of Scottish identity- religion, education and law - as well as politics. The author's infectious enthusiasm for an often-maligned industry surprises and entertains to the very last page.

Deadline by Harry Reid was published by St Andrew Press in October 2006 and is our 24595th best seller. The ISBN for Deadline is 9780715208366.
