Why be part of the audience?

Debate Night is the only television programme of its kind in Scotland that gives you the opportunity to put your questions to some of the country’s key decision-makers and public figures.

Perhaps you run a business or are a frontline worker? You might be a parent, a carer or a student? Are you retired, self-employed or just starting out in the workplace?

It’s your questions, stories, experiences and opinions that lead our discussion – so we couldn’t do it without you!

This year has seen many senior politicians on the panel, with guests including comedian Susie McCabe, former Dragons’ Den entrepreneur Piers Linney, columnists Hugo Rifkind, Brian Wilson, Pat Kane, author Alex Gray and musician Ricky Ross.

Previous episodes of Debate Night are available to watch via BBC iPlayer:
