The People's News

BBC Scotland (16 x 30 mins)

The People's News is a topical series, covering news, events and gossip - not through the official bulletins and newsreels but through the views and reactions of Scottish people who take to their cameras to discuss this week’s burning issues.

Over half an hour, this fast-moving, modern and funny opinion show allows ordinary Scots from every demographic and corner of the country to set the agenda and speak their minds – putting the nation and the wider world to rights direct from their kitchen, gym or farm.

The People's News - Virus Diaries

BBC Scotland’s hit show, The People’s News, is returning with a new twist. The People’s News: Virus Diaries will the chart the lockdown in a series of live diaries from living rooms across the nation every week.

A cast of different families from Aberdeen to Ayr, Shetland to Skye will review breaking news of the crisis sharing their funniest clips and tips to reveal all. The format will feature many of those working on the frontline from health care to farming, supermarkets to delivery drivers to give us their up-to-date and very intimate views. However, it won’t be all doom and gloom as we celebrate new cookathons, exercise regimes, the best and worst TV and the most extraordinary global stories of the week.
