DUNFERMLINE is to feature in a major new TV series on BBC Scotland.

The ancient capital will be taking centre stage in Darren McGarvey’s ‘Class Wars’, where he travels to the cottage where Andrew Carnegie was born to find out more about the wealthy philanthropist’s legacy.

It’s all part of the new series by social activist McGarvey, who ‘crosses over the tracks’ and back again to take a thought-provoking and entertaining look at social class in the 21st century.

Also over the course of the four-part episodes, he dons tweeds at Lauriston Castle, in Edinburgh; goes out on a grouse moor, and gets acquainted with cricket and polo, and meets a young social activist of the next generation, Erin, an inspiring teenager who helped force the Government to change their policy on how exam grades were awarded during the pandemic.

Meeting a wide range of people, McGarvey confronts the existence and impact of social class in Scotland today, challenging his own perceptions of class along the way.

He said: “I have spent a lifetime railing against the middle classes but I am at a crossroads. In this series, I’m seeing how others live and I’m starting to question my own social class.

“So is class a thing in the 21st century?

“Are we all born equal or are some born more equal than others?”

Dunfermline will feature in the third episode of ‘Class Wars’, airing on Tuesday at 10pm.
