A BBC documentary features prominent Glasgow writer Douglas Stewart

His first novel, Shuggie Bain, about an alcoholic single mother and her eccentric son navigating life on a Glasgow cesspool farm, won the Booker Prize.

Part of the BBC’s Imagine series, the documentary follows the successful writer and introduces audiences to the two art teachers who, according to him, “saved his life”.

It will contain notable locations from the book, including the Sighthill estate, Barrowlands Market and the Grand Ole Opry.
