Representing Border returns for the first programme of the new year. As Nicola Sturgeon says any lifting of the lockdown this month is very unlikely Peter MacMahon asks the First Minister about the sharp rise in cases in the south of Scotland and the pressures that's putting on the local NHS. Peter also speaks to the new leader of Nigel Farage's Reform UK Party, the South of Scotland MSP Michelle Ballantyne who claims the lockdown is not working.  Also on the programme, being 21 in 2021.  We speak to some of the generation of South of Scotland young people coming of age in the age of the pandemic.  And can May's Holyrood election still be held in the shadow of COVID?  Peter speaks to Scotland's polling guru Professor Sir John Curtice.
