This programme is a commemorative tribute to the greatest civil engineer
Scotland has ever produced-Thomas
Telford, whose death took place one hundred years ago last Sunday. It gives a rapid survey of the immense work which he did to open up the hills of Scotland to the traveller, and her ports to the merchant and the fisherman.
The story is told partly by two modern travellers journeying over I el-ford's roads and bridges, partly by ghostly voices out of the past, set off by appropriate music and effects.
See the articles on Telford and his works on pages 551 and 554.
