BBC4 The Stuarts in Exile

Anyone else watch this?

http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b06bflr4/the-stuarts-in-exile-episode-1

Episode one ran the time frame of 1688 to 1715. James II, The Old Pretender, and Marlborough and all that. The propaganda machine run from Paris that brought Jacobite information and slogans to England and Scotland through newspapers, poems, portrait paintings and popular song. Fair enough it could only skim over details, but I found it of interest.

I don't know if the above BBC iPlayer video will work in other countries other than in the UK, I'm afraid.

Thanks for posting the link I enjoyed watching the episode.

Its odd how in games of Glory du Roi, Jean Bart and Rene Trouin seem to feature more than Forbin. Which is odd since Forbin was a Grand Admiral of Siam, one of the few witnesses to Louis XIV 2nd wedding to his probable long time mistress Francoise d'Aubigne and as the program showed sailed the Jacobites to Scotland in 1708.

I wonder if this is because Bart & Trouin are basically pirates/privateers with or without French Royal Commission while Forbin is not from Saint Malo or Dunkirk and is basically a holder of a Royal Commission who sometimes goes in for Privateering more in a French Black Operations style than for fun and profit.
