BBC Commissions Two Rivers Media


BBC Scotland has commissioned a two-part series from Two Rivers Media that will mark the 20th anniversary of the opening of the Scottish Parliament.  Presented by Allan Little and Produced and Directed by Catherine Abbott, this series sees Allan embark on a journey around Scotland meeting families who include people in their 20s, 40s and 60s to look at how their lives have been shaped and changed by the creation of the Scottish Parliament over the last 20 years.  In each episode we meet generations of Scots who have lived through devolution: the men and women in their sixties who saw the failed 1979 referendum; the 40-somethings who came of age during the 1997 debate; and those 20-year olds who have never known a Scotland without a Parliament.

As he makes his way across the nation, Allan also reveals how the political battles that have been fought in Holyrood tell the amazing story of a wee country undergoing big change.   Mixing fast-paced news archive with interviews with politicians, campaigners and journalists, this is a revealing and compelling landmark two-part series that goes beyond the politics to see how the Parliament has changed the lives of the people of Scotland.
