Stephen Jardine commented:

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

We want people from all walks of life.  You might be a parent, a carer or a student?  Perhaps you run a business or are a frontline worker?  Retired, self-employed, unemployed or just starting out in the workplace – we need you. It’s your questions, stories, experiences and opinions that lead our discussion – so we couldn’t do it without you!

Our panels are a great mix of people. Recent guests to join our politicians include authors Val McDermid and Alex Gray, musicians Ricky Ross and Pat Kane, columnists Hugo Rifkind, Richard Murphy and Ayesha Hazarika, footballers Pat Nevin and Michael Stewart, comedians Jo Caulfield and Susie McCabe, Lord Sugar’s advisor Mike Soutar from BBC The Apprentice and former Dragons’ Den entrepreneur Piers Linney.”
