Debate Night will return to the BBC Scotland channel with a virtual audience.

During coronavirus restrictions, the studio panel will face questions via video link from members of the public taking part from their homes throughout Scotland.

Presenter Stephen Jardine is inviting people to apply to take part in the political discussion programme.

He said: "Debate Night is the only place where people are regularly able to put their questions and experiences directly to Scotland's policymakers in their own words. Despite the restrictions in place we are determined to continue giving people the opportunity to question those in charge."

Debate Night will be set up to ensure social distancing between the panel of politicians and public figures in the studio.

The first programme, on Wednesday 16 September, is open to audience applications from across Scotland.

It will then go on a virtual tour of the country, with audience video links from a different area each Wednesday.
