The Edinburgh Fringe edition of 'Objective', in which Richard Herring considers the 'See You Jimmy' hat and what it symbolises about our attitudes to Scots and redheads. The 'See You Jimmy' hat is a tartan cap and ginger hair combo, widely available in tourist shops throughout Scotland. In this special episode, recorded at the Edinburge Fringe Festival, Richard Herring looks at the Celtic roots of red hair, asks why ginger hair bullying is acceptable, and explores Scottish identity with the help of Scottish comedienne Susan Calman. Written and performed by Richard Herring, and starring Emma Kennedy, Susan Calman and guests. Produced by Tilusha Ghelani.
