Scary Adult Things

BBC Scotland commissioned Duncan Cowles to do a 6-part TV series to explore millennial problems in an off-the-wall documentary series.

Scary Adult Things’, produced by Studio Something, follows Duncan as he hurtles into his 30’s, still living at home with his parents, he looks around at his peers and attempts to answer the question most millennials wrestle with, ‘am I doing this right?’

ALL episodes available on BBCiplayer from March 16th: 

Episodes 1-6 also aired twice a week on Monday nights at 10:30pm, and Saturday nights at 21:30pm on the BBC Scotland channel. First broadcast March 15th 2021.

The series was repeated on BBC Scotland in 2022, starting April 1st, weekly on Friday nights at 23:30.

The series has now left BBCiplayer.
