Over 9 days in August 2012, Broadcaster, Lesley Riddoch and land rights activist, Andy Wightman will explore the issues that never get properly aired on TV, the issues that lurk beneath the surface of everyday political debate and which, in the midst of a financial crisis, hold the key to our future prosperity and happiness.
How should we govern ourselves in a spirit of openness, accountability and honesty?
Why does poverty and ill health persist when we live in one of the wealthiest countries in the world?
How should we organise public finances and banking so that money becomes a democratic public service designed to support the real economy?
What should we do about the inequalities in land distribution and wealth which have grown up over decades and centuries?
What can we learn from our European neighbours in countries such as Germany, Denmark and Norway?
What might a future as an independent country hold and how should we be approaching this fundamental debate?
Join Lesley and Andy for an entertaining evening of provocative talk and debate about Scotland, its land, its people and their future.
6pm 14-17 & 20-24 August, St John’s Church, west end of Princes Street.
