BBC Radio Scotland’s ‘The Big Debate with Gordon Brewer’ is set to be broadcast live from Kirkintilloch on Friday.

The programme will come live from The Park Centre on Friday, August 28 and programme makers are looking for members of the public to be part of the audience.

The radio version of BBC television show Question Time has been travelling around the country since September 2009.

The programme has now visited more than 70 towns and villages across Scotland, from Kirkwall in Orkney to Kelso in the Borders.

Gordon chairs a panel of speakers from the world of politics, the arts, science, business and other areas of public life.

Sarah Heardman from BBC news said: “Only the audience can ask the questions. We will be debating the news and current issues of the week that will get people talking, so the programme gives YOU the opportunity to challenge, policy makers, writers and thinkers.

“If you want to air your views, join the audience from 11.15am.”

You can book a seat and submit questions by emailing bigdebate@bbc.co.uk or by phoning 0141 422 7773.

Sarah added: “We prefer audience members apply to come along to guarantee a place but there may be space to just turn up on the day. “Audience members must arrive by 11.30am for the live recording at 12pm.

“Questions are chosen on Friday morning before the live programme at 12pm. Audience members will be expected to ask their questions live on air.”

The Big Debate is available on BBC iPlayer for seven days after transmission.
