The Story of Scottish Men Episode 1 of 2

1/2 Gerry Hassan explores the pressures and expectations on men today and kicks off BBC Radio Scotland's season Men Like Us.

Interwoven with his own story of growing up in Dundee, Gerry gives his personal take on the challenges and concerns facing Scottish men. What do the archetypes of Scottish men tell us about ourselves? How has a culture which emphasises its working class nature affected different generations of men? Where are the alternative types of Scottish men? The new man, the Scots gay male or the metrosexual, or other contributions to the changing nature of men?
