Episode 10: Scotland Decides


As the referendum campaign hots up in the aftermath of the first major TV debate, Bateman Broadcasting devotes part of this week’s podcast to the fall-out. Derek discusses the key questions of who won, who lost and who cares with Kevin McKenna of the Observer and journalist colleague Maurice Smith.

Maurice also reports from watching the STV debate with 40 political anoraks, passers-by and undecideds at the home of leading Labour figure Steven Purcell. This Labour-leaning crowd drew a few surprising conclusions.

Our keynote interview this week is the broadcaster and noted cultural historian Billy Kay, a champion of Scottish history and language.
