People of Linlithgow will soon be able to debate their views in a Question Time-style radio show.

The Big Debate with Gordon Brewer is coming to Linlithgow Burgh Halls on Friday, October 9, and producers are appealing for residents of the local area to be part of the audience.

A panel of speakers from the world of politics, the arts, science, business and other areas of public life will be present and only the audience can ask them questions from the news and current issues of the week that will get people talking.

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

If you want to air your views on the big questions of the week and join the audience of The Big Debate you can book a seat and submit questions over email at or over the phone on 0141 422 7773.

Audience members must arrive by 11.30am for the live recording at 12pm and questions are chosen on Friday morning before the live programme at 12pm for audience members to ask their questions live on air.

It is broadcast live from 12– 1pm on BBC Radio Scotland 92-95FM, 810MW, and is available on BBC iPlayer for seven days after.
