BBC Radio 4’s topical discussion show Any Questions is set to be broadcast live from Shetland next month.
Labour’s Hilary Benn, SNP’s Joanna Cherry and Lord Lamont are among the panellists due to appear.
The recording will take place at the Shetland Museum and Archives on Friday 13 March.
Anyone who would like to be in the audience can reserve their free ticket through the Shetland Museum Box Office.
Members of the audience are encouraged to take part in the debate and are asked to submit one or more questions that they are prepared to ask on air.
Questions will be submitted on arrival at the museum from 6.45pm on the night.
As a nationwide broadcast, national or international issues that are in the news that week are most likely to be chosen by the BBC production team.
The programme will be recorded live from the Shetland Museum and Archives auditorium from 8pm to 9pm and those attending must take their seats by 7.15pm.
