Back in the late 1950s it was common for people to see the New Year in by watching "The White Heather Club" on TV with Andy Stewart and Jimmy Shand and his band. One of the songs for which Andy Stewart became famous was this (here with the 1st Scots Dragoon Guards)
Of course Andy always wore a kilt during The White Heather Club. Many Scottish regiments are famous for their kilts. Their pipe and drum bands give displays all over the world.

One of the questions always asked is what does a Scotsman wear under his kilt.

The ladies in the picture are trying apparently to find out. It's said that a true Scotsman wears nothing under his kilt.
That seems to be a cue for Andy Stewart and a kilt montage.
