The Scottish vote for independence in September 2014 led to a soul-searching, national debate about what it means to be Scottish and also what it means to be British. In this episode, we take a look at the life and career of Hugh MacDairmid. MacDairmid spent his life fighting for Scottish nationalism and his work began a legacy of writers resulting in a revival of the Scottish language. Great Scots: The Writers Who Shaped a Nation looks back at this creative genius to answer the crucial question: What image of Scotland will the nation choose for itself this time?
