Made in Scotland /Billy Connolly
All roads lead back home. Billy Connolly may be a citizen of the world, but in his heart he's never been far from his homeland. Made in Scotland is Billy's unique and intimate portrait of his native Scotland, a love letter to the places and people that made him. It's an adventure inspired by a single incident: the moment Billy received his Knighthood and was asked 'How does it feel to have achieved all this when you came from nothing?' His response was, 'But I did come from something!' So begins an odyssey through the Highlands, Lowlands and the Barrowlands on a shaggy dog quest to find out what that 'something' was and whether it is still there. Far from a typical travelogue, Billy's quest is as much through his memories and experiences as it is through his excursions, with a series of key artefacts prompting reminiscences.
