#73 Show Notes: Scottish Merchant Navy and Robert Watson-Watt

In this episode, we feature highlights from Radio Archive #129, originally released February 21st, 2001. Andrew Sr. tells us about the history and importance of the Scottish Merchant Navy, while Andrew Jr. fills us in on Robert Watson-Watt, inventor of radar technology in the early 20th century. Listening to our radio archive is a unique treat, as it bridges two eras of Simply Scottish - twenty years apart - together into one new experience. It's also special because it shares highlights of the valuable contributions Andrew Sr, Andrew's father, made to the program.
