A new eight-part series starting on BBC Scotland this weekend focuses on the three generations of the same family who run a caravan park in Fife – and some of their regular residents.

The Wallace family have been running the Pettycur Bay Holiday Park in Fife for the past 40 years, and have built it up to be one of Scotland’s biggest parks, with over 600 pitches and a leisure complex.

Although most of the pitches are static caravans, the park also takes tourers and motorhomes.

Life on the Bay, which starts on BBC Scotland this Sunday (9 January) at 9.30pm, focuses on the Wallace family, including owner and manager Tom, his son Alan and his grandson Steven, and some of the loyal residents.

The first episode sees Tom, aged 82, and Steven install a new caravan, and also introduces the residents.

The second episode on the following Sunday sees spirits lifted as live entertainment on the site is allowed to resume.

Narrated by Edith Bowman, Life on the Bay is a Red Sky Productions series for BBC Scotland.
