University of Guelph history professor Kevin James has a genuine passion for researching tourism history in the United Kingdom. From 2010 to 2012, James had the opportunity to lend his expertise to the BBC program Grand Tours of Scotland.

British Columbia-based Knowledge Network is currently airing the travel series in Canada, including the three episodes in which James appeared in. The U of G prof, who completed his PhD at the University of Edinburgh, was in the opening episode of the series, “The Romantic Ideal,” as well as episode six of season two, “In Search of Sunshine,” and episode four of season three, “A Bed for the Night.” James offered up his knowledge of whisky tourism, old Scottish inns and Walter Scott for the BBC series, which filmed in unique spots like an 1820’s hotel and a horse and buggy in the Trossachs.
