Ahead of May's General Election we're going to be talking to the Border region's eight current MPs about their last five years in office. We want to scrutinise their record as a constituency MP and their political party on a national level.
To help us pose the most important questions we want you to tell us what you'd like us to ask them.
This is a chance to put your MP on the spot and to grill them about local and national concerns and issues.
So, send us your questions to BTVNews@itv.com, let us know which MP they're for and we'll try to ask a selection of them on your behalf.
A Dumfries youth theatre group are staging a hard-hitting play in their home town tonight about the devastating consequences of a sectarian attack.
Dumfries Junior Guild is putting on 'Unite Don't Fight' at the Brigend Theatre at 7pm - and entrance is free.
The play, written, directed and acted in by Dumfries-based James Napper, tells the story of how four siblings have their family and home destroyed in a religious hatred attack. What starts as joshing results in arson and the death of their parents.
Unite Don't Fight has been touring Dumfries and Galloway this month alongside another sectarianism-themed play called Freedom Square put on by Stranraer's Ryan Youth Theatre.
The intention of the performances is to raise awareness of the damaging impact of sectarianism in Scotland's communities.
Both plays are supported by grants from the Voluntary Action Fund, Scottish Government’s Tackling Sectarianism Small Grant Programme and have been assisted by the Kirkcudbright based South West Scotland Sectarian Project.
"Not only has the project provided the cast with an amazing platform to showcase their talents, it has educated them on the subject and given them a challenging subject and story to tell."
Generally fine with plenty of sunshine, especially at first, with any remaining showers fading away.
However, further cloud, patchy rain and strengthening winds will arrive from the west around dusk. Maximum Temperature 8C.
