BELHAVEN Bay will feature on television next week as part of a three-part series looking at Scotland from the Sky.

The programme, which is described as “an exhilarating mix of aviation adventure and historical detective work", sees presenter James Crawford flying over Scotland’s cities, coasts and countryside.

Using rare archive from Scotland’s National Collection of Aerial Photography and stunning graphics, places that exist only as photographs are brought back to life.

James begins with a visit to Belhaven Bay, where, using First World War aerial photography, he traces the former trenches on the ground and discovers how close the threat of German invasion on Scottish soil really was.

Archive footage, managed by Historic Environment Scotland, is a unique record of a century of change and shows how lives and communities on the ground have been transformed in incredibly dramatic ways.

Episode one of Scotland from the Sky is shown tomorrow (Wednesday, May 16) on BBC One Scotland, from 9pm to 10pm.
