A Scottish institution. Every Hogmanay (New Year) the heroes, villains and bampots of the beautiful game (football) - plus people more generally from the worlds of politics and entertainment - are lampooned mercilessly in a half-hour comedy special. The show puts the boot in to players, pundits and politicians alike.
