Edinburgh - Edinburgh Fringe Special - Leith
Mark uncovers the stories and characters that make up Leith in Edinburgh, in this special one-off episode of the award winning stand-up comedy show, Mark Steel's in Town.
As attention focuses on the Edinburgh festival, Mark Steel immerses himself in one of Edinburgh's lesser-known districts. Taking tales from the history, highways, and Hibs legends - not to mention the port workers, pub fights, and poetry that make up this unique corner of Scotland's capital - Mark delivers a half hour of stand-up comedy about Leith in front of an audience of born and bred Leithers.
The programme was recorded at the BBC's Potterow at The Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2012.
A filmed version was also broadcast on the Red Button: Details
