We're halfway through the four-part series and apparently next week's episode on the national team will have us all in facepalm mode.
The programme is expected to reveal how Andy Roxburgh back in 1982 (before he would become Scotland's manager himself) presented a view to the game's beaks that Scottish football was heading towards decline and measures should be implemented to arrest that scenario.
Former Rangers and Scotland manager, Walter Smith, was apparently one of many who poo-pooed Roxburgh's warning.
Needless to say, next week's episode should be revealing as to how a nation who seemed to qualify for major tournaments for fun - and had youth success to boot - is now hoping opposing teams "go easy on us" when we play them.
The first two episodes, focusing mainly on the Scottish club scene since the mid-80s, has proved to be disturbing viewing.
Had the BBC an extra hour to play with regarding each of those episodes, the picture of how bad things were - and how they were allowed to sink even further - would make folk wonder why they bothered going through the turnstiles every Saturday (or whatever day and lunchtime Sky or BT demand they attend the ground at).
It started with the "Souness Revolution" when former Scotland and Liverpool captain, Graeme Souness, became player-manager at Rangers in 1986 and demanded the directors at Ibrox open the chequebook.
Big names in English football such as Terry Butcher and Ray Wilkins were lured north as Souness set about bringing success to Rangers with the knock-on effect of pricing everyone else out of the market.
Especially when two years later he persuaded a 'friend' - one David Murray - to take over Rangers.
The documentary, while highlighting the excitement of the big-spending Souness era, poignantly looked back had what had gone on prior to his arrival.
It briefly touched on the benchmark Souness (and everyone else for that matter) had to reach in order to be considered as being truly successful.
Namely, Alex Ferguson at Aberdeen and Jim McLean at Dundee United.
Coaches who dealt with budgets far smaller than what Souness would be splashing out at Rangers but would enjoy success at home and with enhanced reputations abroad - not only for themselves but for Aberdeen and Dundee United respectively.
Take the European runs of 1992/93 and 2007/08 out of the equation and you'll find that for all the money spent on players and coaches, Rangers - prior to engulfing itself in 2012 - had since the turn of the 1980s a record in Europe that is best described as being mediocre.
If you compare the records of Ferguson, McLean and Souness in European competition with the Scottish clubs that they managed, it is the one who had cash in abundance to spend who was found wanting.
McLean would have Dundee United reaching a European Cup semi-final, a Uefa Cup final and three Uefa Cup quarter-finals to speak of.
Ferguson, as we all know, won the European Cup-Winner's Cup and the European Super Cup. He also took Aberdeen to a European Cup-Winner's Cup semi-final and a European Cup quarter-final.
The budgets used by the two north-east clubs, especially the one on Tayside, would be a mere drop in the ocean to the one that Souness would feast on at Ibrox.
His best in Europe with Rangers? A solitary European Cup quarter-final - the only time he would ensure the Ibrox side would in on the continent past Christmas.
And if we're talking budgets, the chap pictured above - Jock Stein who was arguably the best club manager that Scotland has produced - had his most expensive signing, Ian Doyle from Ayr to Celtic, priced at £90,000 in 1976.
Around £511,000 in today's money - still a bit off from what Souness would be paying to buy Butcher from Ipswich.
Sadly though, other clubs - including Aberdeen themselves post-Ferguson (and without the prudent directors that were Dick Donald and Chris Anderson) - thought chucking money around, instead of investing in good coaching would lead them up the yellow brick road.
Last night's episode documented that particular absurdity.
TV deals being struck that left the game in Scotland at the mercy of media moguls like Sky who had little interest in what they had acquired bar the nasty baggage that came with the Old Firm fixture.
But hey...cash was God at the time eh?
As was shown by the cack-handed way clubs appeared to be running (read 'ruining') their own affairs.
Hibs' dalliance with the stock market that nearly led to an aggressive takeover by the owner of their most bitter rivals.
Hearts robbing Peter to pay Paul and almost going bust as a result. Not just with one owner but two. Step forward Chris Robinson and Vladimir Romanov.
Gretna's empire of sand built up by Brooks Mileson who managed to lure Premier league ringers to do a turn in the lower divisions so that his club could fast-track themselves up the ladder to the top-flight.
I recall talking to a (now former) football agent the day after Gretna reached the 2006 Scottish Cup final.
Upon asking him how Gretna (who back then were in the 3rd tier of Scottish football) were able to lure some of his clients away from top-flight clubs, I got the following answer.
"I can see your point but when a player is offered ten grand a week as opposed to two, what division that club may be in goes out of the window."
If what I was told back then was indicative of Gretna's signing policy as a whole, a top-flight club outwith Glasgow lashing out that kind of money would eventually struggle to balance the books - let alone one based in a village.
Dundee would go through two administration periods after reckless spending did for them - although the documentary strangely omitted to mention their dalliance with jailed fraudster Giovanni Di Stefano who set the wheels in motion for their initial financial collapse.
Fergus McCann's rescue act - and subsequent stabilisation - at Celtic was highlighted as to what could be done when common sense was allowed to reign supreme over dream-catching attempts.
Yet in a spin-off on Radio Scotland - who broadcast a more extensive interview with McCann - the former Celtic owner's view of downsizing the Scottish game smacked off the ugly attempt at social engineering attempted by Hearts's then-owner, Wallace Mercer, when he tried to justify trying to wipe Hibs off the footballing map with his ill-conceived takeover attempt back in 1990.
Then there is Rangers....
What happened at Ibrox prior to 2012 and with the new club that now inhabits that stadium has been discussed at length on this site.
However, last night's episode illustrated that while snake oil salesmen talk a good game, the likes of David Murray tend to leave punters sucked in by his patter totally devastated.
Craig Whyte rightly deserves a portion of blame for the death of Rangers but Murray had diverted the train on a one-way route over Beachy Head.
Again, all down to financial mismanagement instead of implement a structure to ensure that the club's heartbeat ticks along at a steady beat and ensuring Mr Taxman is not brassed off with you.
One theme that cropped up last night was Scottish football looking through the glass window at its richer neighbour down south - England.
This is not a recent phenomenon.
Scottish football has long since had a talent drain heading south going as far back as when the great Preston side of the late 18 hundreds were offering to pay our top amateurs a wage.
A drain that would increase when English football abolished the maximum wage in early 1960s.
Players heading south used to irritate fans in Scotland who had seen their top stars enticed away.
Now if an English club even considers signing a player from the Scottish league, it is deemed to be a cause for celebration and falsely assumed that our game must be on the rise again.
Lest we forget that so bloated has the mega-rich English Premier League has become, it's own national side appears to be heading towards the decline that our own one has been in since 1998.
One feels the BBC down south will in years to come be making a similar documentary series on "England's Game" and how chasing money has set back progress - especially for the England team itself.
The next two episodes of "Scotland's Game" will more than likely hammer home the fact that Scottish football's decay set in when money took priority over coaching and developing talent that would at least make Scotland's national team and her clubs competitive on the continental stage.
As legendary English footballer Len Shackleton famously once left a blank page in his autobiography to illustrate how much knowledge of the game your average football club director had, this documentary series has highlighted the damage wreaked upon the Scottish game by such clueless individuals.
Money in unintelligent hands always leads to a bad home defeat.
