As Scotland votes to decide its future, this one-off comedy mockumentary turns the spotlight on a nation poised on the brink between triumph and disaster. Created, written by and starring Jack Docherty, Scotland in a Day focuses on all kinds of life north of the border. Featuring a range of comic characters captured ‘self-shot’ style as they document ‘Scotland’s Day of Destiny’, there are passionate Yes voters, out and out Unionists, and those who can’t help flip-flopping on which way to cast their vote. Away from the vote, Scots still get married, have babies, party, celebrate, mark the passing of their loved ones and go about their daily lives. While the eyes of the world are on Caledonia, Scotland in a Day features contributions from a range of comedic voices and discovers there’s more to Scotland than just ‘yes’ or ‘no’.
