This week's episode is a special one, focusing on our series in conjunction with The Herald called Who Owns Urban Scotland.

Ali and Paul are back, and we're joined by Ferret co-editor Karin Goodwin, who explains the difficulties in tracing the owners of major properties and land in Scotland's cities and towns.

Secrecy domains, tax havens, complex company structures and remote ownership are all covered, and Karin shows us how it can be almost impossible to work out who is ultimately behind your local high street, shopping centre or vacant land.
