BBC Radio Scotland’s The Big Debate with Gordon Brewer will be live from Ballater’s Victoria & Albert Memorial Hall on Friday, March 11.

The show is looking for members of the public from Deeside to be part of the interactive audience.

The Big Debate is similar in format to the television programme Question Time, but for radio as opposed to TV, and broadcasts live every Friday lunchtime.

The show has been travelling around the country since the programme was first transmitted in September 2009.

The show has now visited more than 70 towns and villages across Scotland, from Kirkwall in Orkney to Kelso in the Borders. Gordon chairs a panel of speakers from the world of politics, the arts, science, business and other areas of public life and only the audience can ask them questions.

Audience members are asked to submit questions on the week’s news and current issues of the week that will get people talking.

If you want to air your views on the big questions of the week, join the audience of The Big Debate with Gordon Brewer on Friday, March 11. To book a seat and submit questions, contact bdebate@bbc.co.uk or via telephone on 0141 422 7773.

A researcher told the Piper: “We prefer audience members apply to come along to guarentee a place but there may be space to just turn up on the day. Audience members must arrive by 11.30am for the live recording at 12pm.

“Questions are chosen on Friday morning before the live programme at 12pm and audience members will be expected to ask their questions live on air.

“The programme gives you the opportunity to challenge policy makers, writers and thinkers.”

The show will be broadcast live on BBC Radio Scotland 92-95FM, 810MW.

It will also be available on BBC iPlayer for seven days after transmission.
