As the name indicated, Hogmanay Live is BBC Scotland’s annual live event programme broadcast on New Year’s Eve (Hogmanay).
The programme is broadcast LIVE from either Edinburgh Castle’s Great Hall or BBC Pacific Quay. Regardless of location, the programme rings in the New Year with the firing of Edinburgh Castle’s One O’Clock Gun and the subsequent fireworks and celebrations in Edinburgh.
The programme features a mixture of Scottish contemporary and folk music, with some past programming also featuring live coverage of parts of the Princes Street concert in Edinburgh.
