It is just two weeks until Scotland's referendum on independence, but it is not the first time a vote has been held on the nation's constitutional future.
A ballot on the devolution of some powers from London to Edinburgh was held back in 1979.
BBC Breakfast's Bill Turnbull was working in Scotland at the time as a young reporter. He has been back to his journalistic roots in Glasgow to see if much has changed.
