BBC – The Hector: From Scotland to Nova Scotia (2017)

BBC The Hector From Scotland to Nova Scotia

Neil Oliver recounts the story of the 1773 highland migrants who left Scotland to settle in Nova Scotia. He uncovers their terrifying journey on a filthy, disease-ridden ship – the Hector. Neil describes how the migrants were deceived by speculators and goes on to meet their descendants. For some in Nova Scotia, the Hector has become little short of a Canadian ‘Mayflower’.
