Michael Rosen goes to Glasgow to learn the language of Scots and discovers that Scotland's second language is enjoying greater usage among young people and foreigners. He speaks to Glasgow bus driver James Lillis who has been giving classes to Polish drivers to help them understand passengers, student Lorna Wallis whose online poem Tae A Selfie, written in the style of Robert Burns went viral, and to comedian Sanjeev Kohli, a proponent of the Scots vernacular.
