|A New Chapter in Political Coverage
The new 45 minute programme, which will run for 40 weeks of the year, is broadcast on Thursday evenings on Scottish TV.
As well as providing analysis of political developments and holding key decision-makers to account, Politics Now
also brings fresh perspectives on the issues that affect us all.
Head of News and Current Affairs at Scottish TV, Paul McKinney, said: "Politics Now
will aim to bring a fresh perspective on political developments across Scotland as well as tackling issues of significance at Westminster and inside the European Union.
"This is an exciting development for Scottish and Grampian TV. The new programme demonstrates our commitment to in depth political coverage. We hope that Politics Now
will become essential viewing for anyone interested in the politics and future of our country.
"We also hope to bring new viewers to political programming with an innovative and accessible approach to the reporting and discussion of all the big political stories that matter across Scotland."
