  3. Here’s Tae Your Health – now online

    Leave a Comment

    Last Summer, just before the Independence debate had kicked off in earnest, we made a film with a group of volunteers to look at Scottish culture and its relationship with alcohol.

    It raised some very interesting questions, and whilst we had fun making it we also had some heartfelt discussions about the problems and possible solutions to Scotland’s “drinking problem”.

    You can watch “Here’s Tae Your Health” here, and would love to hear your thoughts on the issues raised.
