What is Billy Connolly's Made In Scotland about?

The programme features personal accounts from friends, colleagues and fans.

It also includes interviews with the comedian, actor and musician himself, and archive footage of him performing.

Billy says he has "cut back" on all his work since his Parkinson's got worse and is shown asking for filming to be stopped as he is overwhelmed with pain.

The comic speaks about everything from fame and his perspective on life to the knitted, woolly swimming trunks of his childhood.

What has Billy Connolly said about his health?

In a clip filmed last year, Billy said: “There is no denying it, I am 75, I have got Parkinson’s and I am at the wrong end of the telescope of life. I am at the point where the yesteryears mean more than the yesterdays.

“Because it is back there in my childhood and youth when I go to all those things that made me that live keenest in my memory now.”

In tonight's episode, Connolly says that his life is "slipping away and I can feel it and I should. I’m 75, I’m near the end. I’m a damn sight nearer the end than I am the beginning. But it doesn’t frighten me, it’s an adventure and it is quite interesting to see myself slipping away."

He also says that he may have already filmed his last major TV appearance.
