TV series Outlander to air this summer

Warning: Some readers may scream with delight when they read the following post… even though it has little to do with genealogy.

Good news for fans of Diana Galbaldon’s books. The TV series, Outlander, that takes place in the Scottish Highlands, will air on Showcase this summer. The book is filled with Scottish history, time travel, battles, Scottish accents, kilts, and romance. Here is how Showcase describes it: “In Outlander, Jamie Fraser strikes up a passionate affair with Claire Randall, a married combat nurse from 1945 who is mysteriously swept back in time to 1743. Armed with sheer grit and enduring strength, he is a strapping young Scottish clan lord with a complicated past and a disarming sense of humor.”

The trailer is available on Showcase Canada’s website.
