BBC Scotland has released its Autumn schedule titles, with new programmes Guilt and Emeli Sande’s Street Symphony set to hit screens next month.

The schedule is released along with the news that the first six months of 2019 has seen iPlayer requests for content rise by 64 per cent.

Sande took to the streets of Scotland earlier this year in search of the nation’s finest untapped musical talent.

Over four programmes, viewers will see her visit Aberdeen, Dundee, Perth, Glasgow and Edinburgh to hand-pick her favourite street performers.

After honing their acts, the artists are joined by the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra – and Sande – to give a performance at the City Halls, Glasgow.

The series will be shown on the BBC Scotland channel and a one-hour documentary about it will be broadcast

on BBC1.

Also announced is news of new Scottish drama to lead the schedule, Guilt.

Filmed in various locations over Scotland, including

television studios in Possil, Guilt, which is written by Neil Forsyth and stars Mark Bonnar and Jamie Sives. It is a twisting four-part tale that tells the story of two brothers whose lives are thrown into disarray after they accidentally kill a man driving home from a wedding.

Other titles released in the schedule include Black & Scottish, to mark October’s Black History Month. It is part of the documentary strand Modern Lives, which turns the spotlight on stories from a diverse range of Scottish society, reflecting modern Scotland in places not typically explored.

Previous titles in the series included The Fort and Jamie Genevieve.
