BBC One will stage three major debate programmes in the run-up to the EU referendum. All three of the programmes will feature key campaigners from both sides of the debate, and live audiences from a cross-section of the electorate.

The first programme will be aimed at young voters, who are traditionally alienated by conventional political coverage. Victoria Derbyshire will present the programme live from Glasgow, Scotland on Thursday 26 May.

Just over a week before polling, on Wednesday 15 June, David Dimbleby will moderate a special edition of BBC One’s Question Time programme, featuring one senior advocate from each side.

And, as the campaign reaches its climax, David will be joined by Mishal Husain and Emily Maitlis, live at SSE Arena, Wembley for the BBC’s biggest ever campaign event. We will be inviting thousands of voters to question representatives from the 'leave' and 'remain' camps on Tuesday 21 June.

Additionally, all of the BBC’s regular political interview and debate programmes will continue throughout the campaign. They will travel to all corners of the UK.
