Special 1 The Scheme Debate

  • 2011-06-02T03:35:00+01:00 — 50 mins

The BBC Scotland documentary series, The Scheme, has sparked a wide range of comment since the first two episodes were aired last year. Following the transmission this month of all four original episodes plus an update programme, BBC Scotland is hosting a debate to focus on the social issues which the series raised. Although the programme focussed on families and groups of residents on two estates in Kilmarnock, the themes which came under the spotlight resonate in communities all across Scotland. Glenn Campbell hosts the debate from BBC Scotland's centre in Glasgow and it will feature the views of front-line people who work in similar communities facing economic and social challenges from across Scotland. .
