Burns Night special 2013

Watching Ourselves celebrates 60 years of Robert Burns on the box this January 25th.The programme looks at the weird and wonderful ways television has celebrated the life and works of our most cherished national hero. From the kitsch to the clever, the far-out to the fabled, Burns has been a staple of Scottish television since the formative years. We see how different genres have embraced Burns. Variety, documentary, comedy, animation and live transmissions have all done their bit to keep the bard on the box, and in the brains of successive generations.
