I've not watched any of these but may watch this to see what all the fuss was about :)

But yes, from the trailers I saw advertising this....I too felt ashamed to be Scottish - it just seemed to reinforce all the hard drinking, 'trainspotting' type stereotypes :(

The sad thing is people do live like this and it is one big vicious circle. What hope does a child have when a mother can't even be bothered to get out of bed to take her to school? As was shown in a previous episode.

i agree, that little girl was also switched on to what was happening around her.

in saying that there are obviously some decent people like the family trying to get the community centre together and the old couple in ep 3 taking pride in their home and garden, i appreciate some of it might be dressed up for tv but amazes me people live like that only 5 or 6 miles from me
