How to Steal a Country in 10 Days

ALTERED STATE: Reflections on Scotland's First Independence Referendum. Part 1: How to Steal a Country in 10 Days.
This episode focuses on the conduct of the BBC and HM Treasury during Scotland's Independence Referendum in the final days of the campaign; key organisations both bound by strict codes of impartiality.
Was the last minute reintroduction of the 'Devo Max' offer a clear breach of the Edinburgh Agreement and a cynical attempt to split the pro-independence vote? Did HM Treasury collude with the BBC during the illegal RBS leak of market sensitive information to damage the economic case of the Yes campaign?
Watch and make up your own mind.

This episode includes interviews with Derek Bateman, Professor John Robertson, Paul Kavanagh (Wee Ginger Dug) and Christopher Silver.
