Summary

Writer Alistair Heather sets out on a mission to reclaim the Scots language, which has fallen from common usage ever since King James VI moving his court to London. Alistair travels across Scotland, meeting activists determined to breathe new life into this ancient tongue. He sees Scots taught to enthusiastic pupils in Borders schools and hears the poetry of North East Doric recited by the local MSP. In Glasgow, writer Chris McQueer and comedian Janey Godley take pleasure in reclaiming the Scots dialect of the nation's largest city.
