 THE DECLARATION                 In Production 

For the 700th anniversary of the Declaration of Arbroath in 2020, Billy will present a major series of  three  programmes for BBC Radio Scotland on a hugely significant moment  in Scottish and world history . The Declaration of Arbroath was one of the first statements ever to define a concept of  national sovereignty and it has had a profound influence at home and abroad ever since

 "For as long as but a hundred of us remain alive, never will we on any conditions be brought under English rule. It is not for glory, nor riches, nor honours that we are fighting, but for freedom — for that alone, which no honest man gives up but with life itself."
