This week’s @lesleyriddoch podcast; ‘Scotland’s Future’ – the White Paper gets released, childcare gets discussed or not, and there’s a lot of television about.

There are mentions of Alan Little’s excellent ‘Our Friends in the North’, Scotland Tonight’s use of ‘heng oots’, the riveting spectacle of Eddi Reader on Question Time and that debate between   Nicola and Alistair . And Chris explains what it is like to meet the Ice Queen, Irene Macdougall of Dundee Rep who is in this year’s Christmas show, “The Big Friendly Giant”.
