BBC Scotland is putting the audience at the heart of the campaign with extensive coverage right across the country hearing about the issues that matter most to voters. Across the month there will be in-depth interviews with party leaders on The Sunday Show, simulcast on BBC One Scotland and BBC Radio Scotland, and on BBC Radio Scotland’s Good Morning Scotland which will provide detailed scrutiny of policies. BBC Scotland’s team of experienced journalists will also bring on-the-ground perspectives from communities and people around Scotland each day, reflecting what the country is really thinking as polling day approaches. Debate Night will continue to cross the country giving voters the chance to have their voice heard.
