44 Scotland Street: Series 5
written & dramatised by Alexander McCall Smith

There's poetry in the air for Stuart Pollok; Bruce's girlfriend has hidden skills; and Angus' dog has history. It's all happening in Edinburgh's New Town.

Edinburgh's Georgian New Town is the setting for the quirky tales and 'goings on' of Alexander McCall Smith's much loved characters from his bestselling series of books, 44 Scotland Street.

Bruce, a young surveyor, is smitten by an adventurous Australian girl, but is she all she seems? Edinburgh's most hot housed seven year-old, Bertie Pollok, is up for the role of Macbeth in the school play. Meanwhile his father, Stuart, meets a young poet who may just turn his head. All this and more, observed by portrait painter Angus Lordie and his dog, Cyril, the only canine in Scotland with a gold tooth.
