Here are the BBC Radio Scotland highlights for November 2010, as reported on the BBC Radio Scotland blog.

BBC Children in Need this year took place on Friday 19th November. Bryan Burnett visited some of the projects who have benefited from Children in Need and recorded some moving stories which we featured on the blog. MacAulay and Co, Brian Taylor and Tom Morton all presented live shows from BBC Pacific Quay with special guests. In the evening Edith Bowman was backstage at Children in Need Rocks from the SECC.

Also for charity, many of BBC Radio Scotland's male presenters took part in the Movember challenge - challenging men to change their appearance and the face of men's health by growing a moustache. Here are Bill Whiteford and John Beattie.

Shereen Nanjiani had an eclectic mix of interesting guests on her show including Alistair Urquhart, Ashley Leiman OBE, James Cosmo and Caroline Lucas.

In music, Another Country came to the end of its current series with a Bruce Springsteen special and had an hour in the company of singer-songwriter Darrell Scott. Edith Bowman's Album Show returned for a new series, and the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra celebrated 75 years.

Poet Norman MacCaig would have turned 100 in November 2010, and Out of Doors marked the occasion with a special programme from Assynt. Remembrance 2010 was marked on BBC Radio Scotland with a number of programmes including Poppies to Remember and The Forgotten 51st.

And finally, winter arrived earlier than advertised, with travel chaos and heavy snow. More on that tomorrow!
