Epic historical movies like Mary Queen of Scots, Outlaw King and Robert the Bruce, as well as more contemporary offerings such as Wild Rose and Beats, have won both awards and critical acclaim. Major television productions like The Victim and, more recently, Guilt, have also ensured that Scotland’s creative potential has been highlighted.
