Henry Bell (1767-1830) was the first person in Europe to develop a commercial steamship service with his boat ‘The Comet’, despite sceptics such as James Watt ridiculing the idea. 

 

Richard Oswald.

Richard Oswald (1705-1784) was one of the first Scottish global entrepreneurs, gaining part of his wealth through the slave trade.  On behalf of the British Government, he signed the preliminary 1782 Treaty of Paris, which allowed the American colonists their independence. 

 

The True Story of Doctor David and Mary Livingston.

Doctor Livingstone (1813-1873) became a missionary and explorer in Africa.  He was the first white man to discover the Victoria Falls and a fierce campaigner against the slave trade.  However, he had a number of personal failings, including a neglect of his wife and family.  In this production, both David and his wife Mary tell their story.
