Gary McLintoch - Tank Commander, proud Scot, showbiz personality and now documentary filmmaker. In this Hogmanay special, Gary's deployed to the bright lights of Los Angeles to explore the ups and downs of life in Tinseltown and meet the Scots who've relocated there to seek fame and fortune.
Gary swaps military manoeuvres and combat fatigues for investigative reporting and a natty holiday wardrobe as he gets to grips with life in La La Land. He meets Guardians of the Galaxy and Jumanji movie star Karen Gillan and showbiz legend Ross King to find out why they moved away, what they make of Hollywood and what they miss most about home.
He discovers what they love about their new Stateside home and what sacrifices they've made to create a life in America as he seeks to understand why a patriotic Scot would leave their homeland behind.
