Billy Connolly returns to Glasgow's famous Kings Theatre, where his journey into comedy first began, to talk life, death and laughter, in a no holds barred encounter with BBC Arts editor Will Gompertz.

It is a conversation that looks back on the Big Yin's past and ahead to the future, covering all elements of his unusually packed existence - how he got started, his approach to comedy, his Scottish roots, and how Parkinson's disease is the latest thing he is having to laugh at.
