CUMBERNAULD has been picked as a venue for one of the BBC’s latest debates on Scotland’s constitutional future.
 
The town’s Theatre, in Kildrum, will host a BBC Radio Scotland debate on the pros and cons of independence, ahead of the referendum, in 2014.
 
Chaired by BBC Scotland’s Political Editor Brian Taylor, the broadcaster’s ‘Big Debate’ programme is broadcast every Friday, on BBC Radio Scotland.
 
Now, Cumbernauld Theatre will host the latest in the BBC debate series, on Friday 8th March 2013.

 
 
 
“The 60-minute long live discussion, covering topical stories, takes place from a different location each week and people can put their questions to a panel of politicians and prominent figures from the world of business, academia and the arts,” a spokesperson told Cumbernauld Media.
 
Currently, the BBC is appealing for audience members to take part in the debate, which lasts around 75 minutes.
 
“BBC Scotland's political editor Brian Taylor chairs his Big Debate on Radio Scotland each Friday lunchtime,” the spokesperson added.
 
Interested parties can apply via the BBC’s website or anyone unable to make it along to the event can listen to the debate at 12noon on BBC Radio Scotland, at 92-95 FM and 810 MW, with the programme broadcast both live and recorded on the BBC iPlayer service.
 
The panel has yet to be announced for the Cumbernauld show.
