The Big Yin himself reflects on his life alongside treasures from the archives.

With subjects ranging from the shipyards to sex, religion, class and politics, Billy - in a new and candid contemporary interview - talks about his life, career and routines, shedding light along the way on the cultural landscape of Scotland... and beyond.

As Billy himself says: "All my life I've wanted to make people laugh... while I might have been shocking, I never set out to shock, I just did what I thought was funny, but looking back I can see that by sending up what was around me at the time, I might well have ended up breaking down barriers and taking on the odd taboo."

He reviews a range of archive film throughout the series, ranging from classic routines and interviews to some rare and long forgotten documentary footage.
