The future of Scotland has been the focus of an ongoing debate

BBC Scotland is appealing for members of the public to join an audience for the latest in a series of debates on the future of Scotland.

The television special will take place on Friday, 29 June.

Both the Scottish and UK governments have held consultations into the issues surrounding a referendum on Scottish independence.

SNP leader and First Minister Alex Salmond has named autumn 2014 as his preferred date to hold the vote.

The venue for the debate, featuring a panel of politicians and being hosted by political editor Brian Taylor, will be BBC Scotland's Glasgow headquarters at Pacific Quay.

The programme will be broadcast at 19:00 on Friday on BBC One Scotland.
