Scots words like fankle, stramash and gallus are as much a part of Scottish culture as haggis, kilts and rain.  These words are both more fun and more expressive than their formal equivalents, if they even have one. In Blethering Scots, ten prominent Scots, including Sanjeev Kohli, Bill Paterson and Kaye Adams, share their favourite Scots words and what they mean to them.

The show remains available as a resource for schools and can be found on the BBC website.

Producer/director: Ian Lilley
