In this episode, Kirsty Wark revisits the 1980s and early 1990s, the period between the rise of Thatcherism and the birth of New Labour. For Scotland, it was a time of painful transition, but as old industries declined some opportunities arose. These were the years that saw the rise of a new type of Scottish entrepreneur, that heralded a new era in home ownership and that witnessed the rebranding and creative revival of Scotland's biggest city.
