BBC Scotland’s political discussion show ‘Debate Night’ is filming in Aberdeen on Wednesday 19 June, and is seeking an audience for the live discussion ahead of transmission.

Debate Night is the only television programme of its kind in Scotland.  With a UK general election next month, the programme’s producers say there has never been a better time to put audience questions to the country’s decision-makers and public figures.

Host Stephen Jardine commented:

“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, columnists Owen Jones, Hugo Rifkind and Ayesha Hazarika, comedians Karen Dunbar and Susie McCabe, musicians Ricky Ross and Fish, Lord Sugar’s advisor Mike Soutar from BBC The Apprentice and former Dragons’ Den entrepreneur Piers Linney.”
