                       Macbeth: Investigative journey
You have now become a journalist working for the popular Scottish
newspaper the Dunsinane Detector. The newspaper prides itself as being the
most read in Scotland with daily circulation of around 500,000 papers. The
Dunsinane Detector provides news coverage for all local, national and
international news items as well as specialising in researching and
investigating Scottish history.

The newspaper has recently reported that a Scottish scientist has designed
and tested a time machine called ‘The Banshee’ that allows people to go back
or forward to a preselected time in history.

Following the announcement of the machine’s development several
Dunsinane Detector journalists decide they would like to go back and
investigate a significant event that happened in the 11th Century. The
journalists want to use the time machine to go back and report first hand on
the events surrounding the rise and fall of the legendary Macbeth.

Following an in-depth presentation to the paper’s editorial staff the journalists
are granted permission to use the time machine. The Dunsinane Detector
editors have decided to fund the proposed investigative journey as the time
machine’s advanced technology will allow the journalists to submit news
items directly from the 11th Century.

In granting permission the editor advises the journalists that they will be
required to provide on-going news reports and background information for
inclusion in a planned special edition of their popular weekend magazine, The
Scotlander.

To create reader interest in the planned historical event the newspaper
decides to actively promote the journalist’s journey back in time to the 11 th
Century.
