My wife and I have probably become rather addictive to watching TV-serials. Main point in this is to pick a really good interesting one, preferably British or Irish, some German also will do.
Quite occasionally I have bumped across a rather good one - Outlander. The story is akin to a fairy tale - time-travelling and all the stuff around it. But can one make a try and give an objection to the fact that all films and serials are fiction - i.e. fairy tales; if they are not the documentary ones. But even chronicles is a fiction too - the way they are written or taken, mostly depends on an author, producer and/or film operator. As it was said in one clever book, the history (or a story telling) depends on our personal perception and contorted reminiscences of things happened in the past and not bein seen now.
But off from tangential issues. So, - Outlander. It is a serial about the things happened in Scotland in the year of 1746, or even started in 1743. A Clare, a woman who was a nurse during the WW2, had finally rejoined with her husband Franc, and they went off to Scotland for their second honey moon and for making up again the family and for getting known again each other after a long separation by the war.
The place they went to is a town of Inverness, the time is autumn, 1945, just before the day of All Saints. Franc's civilian profession is history - he was just offered a lecturer position at university. But he is also interested in any facts concerned his former ancestor, an English officer, nicknamed Black Jack, who served his duties at Scotland just before the battle of Culloden. That was a battle between the English Protestants and Scottish Catholics, Jacobites, who wanted to put back on the British throne the Stewart dynasty in presense of prince Bonny Charley.
Meanwhile, Clare had got interested in a sort of druid rituals being watching a group of women dancing around a some sacred stones in the place called Craig Na Dun...
