Scotland's Greatest Song

A series of 10 mini-docs profiling great Scottish songs, concluding in a special show on St Andrews Day to finally determine Scotland’s greatest song of all time.

10x 2min and 1x 3hr, by Audio Frontier, first aired November 2020

From Deacon Blue to Del Amitri, from Belle and Sebastian to Biffy Clyro, we are going to hear from the artists, the producers, the experts and most importantly the fans in a series of mini docs concluding in a special show which commemorates the finest music this country has offered the world.

Using a roundtable format, we’ll play some of the best songs the country has produced, based on listener suggestions. Using industry experts, artists and radio presenters, these songs would be narrowed down to a short list of 10 within a 3-hour weekend show on 15th November.

Each song will then be the subject of a mini-doc, to be broadcast in the fortnight run up to St Andrews Day. Once all 10 songs have been featured, listeners will then vote on their favourite, before we count down all 10 in a one hour special on the 30th November.
