Livingston Skateboard Park — known as “Livi” — is legendary among skaters throughout the world. In the 1980s and ‘90s, Livi was thriving; but forty years on, the surfaces have deteriorated and become dangerous to skate on.
A local group of three ambitious skate girls — known as “The Snagglerats” who formed the group to inspire more girls to skate — are on a mission to save Livi.
With the help of their mums and old school skaters, the Snagglerats discover Livi’s unique history and an unexpected chat with Tony Hawk strengthens their determination to push for positive change. Can the girls inspire enough support in their community to make Livi great again?
Long Live Livi was broadcast on BBC Scotland on Thursday 11th June, 2020 at 8.30pm. Visit the BBC iPlayer page.
