Burnistoun Tunes In

Burnistoun is back and ready to tune in! This one-off special of the hit sketch show celebrates television in Scotland, from the nostalgic black and white past to everyone's coolest modern-day favourites, all viewed through the hilariously unique Burnistoun filter. Quality Polis, McGregor and Toshan, are back on the beat while Peter and Scott and the Up Eh Road guys also return to discuss, disrupt or appear on the small screen.
