The Politics Show in Scotland

One thing is for sure - life is never simple in Scottish politics

Four different voting systems, the SNP in government for the first time and separate legal and education systems which go back centuries.

Add to that a cast of political characters that could keep journalists occupied for months.

Making sense of it all is not so simple, however, and that is where BBC Scotland's Politics Show comes in.

Every week, Glenn Campbell and the Scottish team get stuck into the stories that matter - at Holyrood, Westminster, Brussels, and beyond.

Our reporters travel the country speaking to those at the sharp end and Glenn holds those who make the decisions, and those who put them into practice, to account in the studio.

Terrific Chilli

Based at the Scottish Parliament in Edinburgh, Glenn Campbell reports politics for a wide range of BBC programmes from Reporting Scotland on television, to Scotland at Ten on Radio Scotland.

He was born and brought up in the Hebrides, before studying at Islay High School and Glasgow University.

Glenn's career began in commercial radio. A former Head of News and Sport at Scot FM, he also presented the station's news magazine Lunchtime Live which won a silver Sony award in 1999.

With his commercial experience behind him, Glenn joined the BBC in 2001 as a news reporter.

He has reported from New York in the aftermath of September 11, the refugee camps of Macedonia during the Kosovo crisis, and the Scottish Parliament since the day it opened.

Glen enjoys travelling, tries to keep fit and claims to cook a terrific chilli con carne.

For the moment, Glen is looking forward to eating, drinking and sleeping politics for his role as presenter of The Politics Show.

The Politics Show on Sundays at Midday on BBC One.
