The novel by Sir Walter Scott
Adapted as a serial in eight episodes by R. J. B . Sellar
4—' Tarnished Honour '
Special music by Ian Whyte who conducts the BBC Scottish Orchestra
(Leader. J. Mouland Begbie )
Produced by Finlay J. Macdonald
When Nigel Olifaunt, Lord Glenvarloch, arrived in London to reclaim from King James I a long-standing family debt, he found himself thwarted by powerful and secret enemies. Only one of them came out into the open-the ambitious and lordly Duke of Bucking-ham.
The young Scotsman could count on only two friends-Margaret Ramsay and, strangely enough, Lord Dalgarno, the son of a traditional rival of the Glenvarlochs. Margaret Ramsay was doubtful of Dalgarno's sincerity, and Nigel's own faith was considerably shaken when he discovered that Dalgarno was a boon companion of Buckingham's.
