Summary:

Home to the Loch Ness monster, kilts, clans and medieval castles, Scotland was also the birthplace of some amazing innovators, who made major contributions to our world. We watch television every day but few of us know that it was invented by a Scottish engineer named John Logie Baird. He also developed colour television and other ways of communicating that have become intrinsic parts of everyday life. Be inspired by the rags to riches story of Andrew Carnegie, an entrepreneurial magnate who amassed riches never seen before. He also unselfishly supported the betterment of the lives of others through his generosity as a great philanthropist.

Meet Thomas Telford, the 'Colossus of Roads' who has left an immense legacy in what he designed and built. Discover how James Lind became an outstanding clinician, responsible for saving countless lives to this very day. Be blown away by the life story of James Watt, whose work on the steam engine and other innovations has transformed our world.

Each story comes to life through BioViews®. These are short biographical narratives, similar to interviews. They provide an easy way of learning about amazing people who made major contributions and changed our world.
