BBC Radio Scotland’s The Big Debate with Gordon Brewer will be broadcast live from Cairns Church in Milngave on Friday, October 10.

And the programme makers need members of the public to be part of the audience.

The Big Debate has been travelling around the country since the programme was first broadcast 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.

The audience are asked to submit questions on the week’s news on the most stimulating moral, political and social issues of the day - the current issues that will get people talking. So the programme gives people in the audience the opportunity to challenge, policy makers, writers and thinkers.

You can book a seat and submit questions online by going to www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-scotland-politics-15190428 or email bigdebate@bbc.co.uk or call 0141 422 7776.

Audience members must arrive by 11.30am for the live recording which starts at 12pm.

The Big Debate with Gordon Brewer is broadcast live from 12pm – 1pm, BBC Radio Scotland 92-95FM, 810MW and available on BBC iPlayer for seven days after transmission.
