    I shudder to think what "being Anglicised" entails. I hope that doesn't mean dubbing!

    Hi, Argyll, and welcome
    I've heard so much about that show and am dying to see it...dunno if it will make it overseas without being anglicised..seemingly they've altered it for English viewing and it has brought 6 shows down to 3!

    I saw that show when I was home at Christmas time. I loved the lustful old Granny talking about her cinematic James Dean experience. It certainly is good for dialect. The same people do the sketches for Radio Scotland's 'On the Ball' programme on Saturdays, which you can get on the BBC Scotland web-site live.

    Hiya Bob,

    Shortly before you arrived on the S.com scene, there was the beginnings of a "Chewin' The Fat" topic. For your reading-and-posting pleasure:

    I was on that list too jarmine. Too many notes! Do you have the URL, in case people want to check it out for themselves?

    Another of my favourite phrases:

    "He wouldny gie a blind sparra a worm."

    The site isn't very busy but the e-group used to be. I was a member of it but had to pull out cos there was just too much stuff to read! I was reading it off the page and not getting the e-mails (thank Goodnes!)
