Episode 1

Hardeep Singh Kohli presents the first in a 3-part series exploring Scotland and its links to the Commonwealth.

This week, as Glasgow prepares to host the 20th Commonwealth Games, he warms up with a look at
his country's sporting heroes, from the amateur to the elite.

Olympian Katherine Grainger, rugby legend Gavin Hastings and record breaking cyclist Mark Beaumont share their hopes for the Games and Hardeep asks if Scotland will shake off its image as a nation of glorious losers, snatching defeat from the jaws of victory.

Hardeep takes one for the team as he joins his local gym to burn some calories and discovers a hidden talent for lawn bowls when he challenges a member of the Pakistan Team to a game!
