What's Wrong With Scotland? was a ten-part series of talks on the BBC's Scottish radio stations broadcast over October and November 1929. Designed as a follow-up to the series, Scotland To-Day, in which almost every field of contemporary Scottish activity was surveyed by a expert, ten well-known Scotsmen were invited to offer their remedies. Five of the speakers were Scots who had left their country to find greater scope in London, and five of them were Scots who had stayed at home.
