Journalist and broadcaster Paul English marks the 20th anniversary of The Man Who, the landmark album by Scottish band Travis. Released in 1999, the record initially received a lukewarm response, until one afternoon at Glastonbury festival changed the fortunes of Fran Healy, Dougie Payne, Andy Dunlop and Neil Primrose forever.

The work of four guys from Glasgow went on to became a formative influence on bands like Coldplay and The Killers, and defined the sound of the post-Britpop era, going on to win almost every major award going.

From the attic of the Horseshoe Bar to Studio 2 at Abbey Road, with help from the band themselves, Radio 2 DJ Jo Whiley, and some of the pop stars they went on to influence, Paul tells the story of one of the most successful Scottish albums ever, meeting the key figures behind the creation of a modern Scottish classic including world renowned producers Nigel Godrich and Mike Hedges, and rediscovers what the album meant to him as a 22 year old journalist at the start of his career.
