In this programme, entitled The Linguistic Legacy of Robert Burns, which will be transmitted at 15.05, Billy travels around Scotland and enquires how much of the bards tongue is used today. Speaking in their own tongues, people tell Billy what they think of the bard and his language, and how the Scots language fares today.
