Radio and TV Producer Uzma Mir, examines whether our attitudes to race and racism have changed over the last 3 decades. In this programme, she compares the experiences of Scotland’s black and ethnic minority communities then and now when it comes to hate crime and institutional racism, and asks if Scots have a different outlook to those in the rest of the UK on race.
