The Scottish Heritage series of programmes for schools on the BBC Home Service, which ran from 23 January 1942 until, at least, 2 July 1964.
According to the BBC Handbook 1944, 'in it Scottish pupils were encouraged to take a lively interest in the varied inheritance of their own country — in history and legend, song and battle, and the work and life of today'.
In 1944, in an otherwise critical report of the BBC, members of the Saltire Society singled out Scottish Heritage for praise, describing it as "full of enterprise and imagination".
As part of an increased provision for Scottish schools broadcasts in 1946, a Scottish Heritage II series helped children to 'understand the economic and social problems of their country, and to appreciate their inheritance in music, literature, science, art, and politics'.
The BBC Genome project lists all the editions of the programme.
The budget for the programme in 1952 was £1,792.
From 1949, it was joined by other series which explained Scotland's history, industry and contemporary problems, including: Exploring Scotland, This is my Country and Scottish Affairs.
