A NEW BBC Alba documentary explores the lives of twenty-somethings in the modern world – and compares them to generations gone by.

Asking if your twenties really are the best years of your life, Cass Ezeji presents Na 20an (Twenties) from the award-winning Trusadh series.

The musician goes on a journey of self-discovery, delving into the lives of young people across Scotland to see how different people in their 20s are compared to previous generations.

Ezeji, 29, speaks to young Gaelic social media influencers, as well as her own granddad, George McNally – asking and answering questions as she approaches her 30s with some apprehension.

As a Gaelic speaker, Ezeji has been outspoken about ways to enhance how we think about the Gaelic language and its culture.

Among those that Cass meets is Mark Smith, 25, from Shawbost on the Isle of Lewis who now lives in Glasgow and is enthusiastic about promoting the Gaelic language on social media platforms.

Smith does this through his Instagram cooking tutorials and feels he and others are helping to keep the language alive by using it on modern outlets.

Cass also speaks to Iona Whyte, who is passionate about a sustainable way of living and tackling climate change.

The 27-year-old is anti-fast fashion, doing the majority of her shopping in vintage and charity shops.

Chloe Steele, 23, with her partner, is building a house in Lochcarnan, South Uist, believing that young people staying in the islands is key in keeping the Western Isles vibrant and moving forward.

Trusadh – Na 20an (Twenties) airs on BBC Alba on Monday, April 10, 2023 at 9pm and will be available on BBC iPlayer for 30 days after.
