THE chance to be part of a 'live' TV audience for a topical discussion programme on BBC Scotland is being offered folk in the Highlands.

BBC Scotland’s Debate Night programme is touring the country virtually to give the people of Scotland the opportunity to have their say about the issues that matter most to them.

People in the North Highlands and Western Isles are being invited to apply now for the Wednesday, March 17 episode.

Members of the general public are invited to apply to join the live audience via Zoom and have a say in the evening’s programme.

Presenter Stephen Jardine said: "Maybe you are a student, a frontline worker, run a business, have been self-isolating or your work has been affected by Coronavirus; whatever your situation, we want you to apply and be part of the discussion.

"As a Debate Night audience member, it is YOUR questions which lead the discussion and the stories, experiences and opinions you share with us that matter most. It is the only TV programme of its kind in the country to allow you the chance to put your questions to Scotland’s key decision-makers and public figures each week."
