ITV Border is to broadcast a series of programmes examining the history and development of the independence question in Scotland, as part of ITV’s coverage plans for southern Scottish viewers, ahead of the referendum in September 2014.
Road to Referendum, presented by Iain Macwhirter, will chronicle the social, cultural and political changes in Scotland and the evolution of the independence debate. There will also be a two part documentary series later this summer, called A Scottish Journey.
It will look at the arguments in favour and against Scotland being an independent country.
The documentaries are part of the extensive programming ITV Border plans to run ahead of the vote in September 2014, in addition to regular coverage within ITV Border's Lookaround programme.
