Darren McGarvey's Class Wars
Far from his birthplace of Glasgow's Pollok, Darren finds himself in the stately home of Lauriston Castle in Edinburgh. Beginning with a linguist examining Darren's accent, this journey quickly spirals out into an authored examination of the impact of social class today and Darren's own identity crisis. Along the way, Darren tries his hand at Scotland's 'secret' sport, cricket, meeting two diverse teams in Inverness who are doing what they can to remove the image of cucumber sandwiches.
Starting off in Logie Estate in Dundee, Scotland's oldest housing scheme, Darren discovers that social class and where people live has a massive effect on destinies.
As Darren sets out to examine the power imbalance that lies at the heart of social class, he begins to wonder whether the system is rigged, and, if so, what can be done?
