Bloomberg TV Runs Story About Panmure House

Nicholas Phillipson, author of "Adam Smith: an enlightened life", 2010 (Yale) speaks to a very short video of several shots inside and outside Panmure House from Bloomberg TV HERE

If you have not yet seen Panmure House, which is to be restored and renovated by Edinburgh Business School (Heriot-Watt University), take a few moments to watch it.   You will get an idea of the immensity of the task and the historic value of Panmure House, where Adam Smith lived from 1778-90 and where he socialised with the leading figures of the Scottish Enlightenment.  He completed the 6th editions of Moral Sentiments and Wealth Of Nations in Panmure House.

I'm glad to see they are restoring Panmure House. Any ideas when the plan on finishing it?

I'm a bit of an historical home aficionado.
