Episode 2 of 6
The second edition of The Gates, BBC Radio Scotland's exciting new sketch show, is set among the parents who gather to collect their children from school. The show is presented as a documentary parody and features strong characters like 'Linda' whose is obsessed with celebrity and Ida MacGinlay who has old fashioned ideas of discipline. The series is written and presented by Pauline Goldsmith, Vivien Grahame and Jo Jo Sutherland - three women with years of experience in the comedy scene in Scotland. Each episode touches on real issues around parenting and is a weird, wonderful and entertaining as life at the school gates can be. This week Mrs Johnstone's son Mark is in trouble again and we explore vanity among the women.
