In a special edition from the Scottish National Portrait Gallery, Philip Dodd is joined by writer Ian Rankin, artist Alison Watt whose self portrait now hangs at the gallery, the poet and critic Robert Crawford, and John Leighton Director General of the National Galleries of Scotland to examine the nature of portraiture and the cultural tensions created when capturing a likeness in figurative and abstract painting, poetry and literature.
