Scotland 2016 is a news and current affairs programme from BBC Scotland News, presented by Sarah Smith and Jonathan Sutherland. Starting 28 May 2014, it was called Scotland 2014 before being renamed to reflect the year. It replaced Newsnight Scotland as BBC Scotland's flagship political programme. The half-hour programme airs from 10.30pm Monday to Thursday, opposite STV's Scotland Tonight, with Newsnight being broadcast in Scotland at 11pm.


Scotland 2014 was part of a major shake-up in BBC Scotland News and current affairs programme in the run up to the 2014 Scottish independence referendum.[1][2] The BBC stated the series "will demonstrate how Scotland impacts on national and global events and how national and global events impact on Scotland."[3]
