The BBC say the Scheme is "an observed documentary series following the dramatic and often emotional highs and lows of daily life for six different families all living in one large housing scheme in Kilmarnock".
This series is must-see TV. I grew up in Easterhouse, Glasgow and can vouch for its authenticity having seen first-hand the kind of poverty, addiction and hopelessness of housing scheme life experienced by the six families living in The Scheme.
Three episodes have been aired already, but can be viewed online via the iplayer. Episode 4 is on tonight; episodes 5 and 6 will be broadcast on Monday 30th May and Tuesday 31st May respectively. This is a post-watershed series as it contains very strong language and scenes some viewers may find disturbing, so parental guidance is advised.
