(Man) Welcome to bonnie Scotland. 00:01:13.375 - 00:01:15.582
It is the year of Our Lord 1828. 00:01:15.666 - 00:01:19.207
And this is where I work, 00:01:19.291 - 00:01:20.832
the market square in Edinburgh, our capital city. 00:01:20.916 - 00:01:23.749
(indistinct conversations, geese honking) 00:01:23.833 - 00:01:26.707
They're calling this the Scottish Enlightenment. 00:01:26.791 - 00:01:29.582
(chuckles) Enlightenment? 00:01:30.708 - 00:01:33.207
You could have fooled me. 00:01:33.291 - 00:01:34.499
I mean, look at the state of them. 00:01:34.958 - 00:01:37.207
The only people round here looking to be enlightened 00:01:38.125 - 00:01:40.332
are the medical students. 00:01:40.416 - 00:01:41.790
They come to study at the feet of our famous doctors. 00:01:41.875 - 00:01:45.249
Edinburgh is the medical capital of the world. 00:01:45.333 - 00:01:48.165
Get yourselves an education there, lads. 00:01:48.291 - 00:01:50.790
On one side of the city, you have Barclay's School of Anatomy, 00:01:50.875 - 00:01:55.415
And that's run by the esteemed surgeon Doctor Robert Knox. 00:01:55.500 - 00:01:59.749
Now some say that he's the finest surgeon in all of Scotland. 00:01:59.833 - 00:02:04.249
All I can say about Doctor Knox is that he dresses well. 00:02:04.333 - 00:02:08.582
Quite the dandy. 00:02:08.666 - 00:02:10.624
Ah, there's nothing like starting off a new term with a fresh corpse. 00:02:10.708 - 00:02:15.249
- Is there, Patterson? - Indeed, sir. 00:02:15.333 - 00:02:17.249
