The BBC Radio Scotland debate is being held in Greyfriars Parish Church, with doors open from 11.15am, and the show is live on air from noon until 1pm.

Former Newsnight presenter Gordon Brewer is the host of The Big Debate.

Every Friday the programme visits a different part of Scotland to discuss the big issues of the week.

Gordon will be joined by a panel of speakers from the world of Politics, Arts, Science, Business and other areas of public life. But BBC Scotland wants you - the audience - to pose the questions.

“We look for questions on the most stimulating moral, political and social issues of the day - the current issues that will get people talking. So the programme gives YOU the opportunity to challenge politicians, policy makers, writers and thinkers,” said a spokeswoman for the programme.

Questions should be brief and to the point if possible and should be on something that’s been reported in the news.


“As the programme broadcasts to a Scotland wide audience, we look for issues that raise matters of genuine national and international interest.”

There is no guarantee that all questions will be used, but those interested should email questions to [email protected] by 5.30pm, on Thursday January 21.
