The show first began in theatre before moving to radio and television, and proved so popular among its Scottish audience that it was broadcast nationally as of the fourth season.
Kathryn McGoldrick, who is working on the Still Game celebratory show said: “With funny anecdotes from some of Still Game’s biggest fans, scenes from the past nine series and video messages from fans across the globe, the whole nation will be in conversation about Craiglang and the gang.”
