Scotland's TV today is full of the launch of the Victoria & Albert Museum at Dundee and personally I can't wait to get there.

The impact of this on the regeneration of the City figures highly in the reports but to be fair to the BBC there was a parallel report on the deeper issues affecting the city which has more than its fair share of crime & drug problems.

My question is this - can a global art installation such as the V&A really influence the future of this fine city or do the old problems need sorting out first or indeed are both aspects essential to a way forward?

I really want to see it too. I don’t know Dundee but I imagine the increased revenue to the city can only help fund solutions to any problems.

Dundee is what I like to think of as the Scottish riviera, very similar to Nice really, I think you’re in for a treat

Will be going at the earliest opportunity.

No doubt a game changer but investment (private and public) has to follow to leverage.

I like to think of it as Lagos, but without the mosquitos.

In reply to Eric9Points: I can’t quite see the scale of it and the concrete elements but my first thought watching telly tonight was ‘who will get the first ascent?’! Deep water solo?
