Celebrating 60 years of television in Scotland, a look at how Scotland's cities have featured heavily in Scottish television drama. Writer Peter McDougall's groundbreaking plays represented, for the first time on television, working-class Scotland: its poverty, sectarianism, drink and drug problems, and its hard men. Shoot for the Sun got under the skin of 80s Edinburgh, Jute City featured Thatcherite criminals in Dundee and The Steamie presented a nostalgic look back to a vanished Glasgow. With contributions from Brian Cox, David Hayman and Eileen McCallum.
