Award-winning programmes
Frontline Scotland is BBC Scotland's award-winning investigative journalism series.

It has uncovered a range of important stories over the years including the Shirley McKie fingerprint story.

Frontline's investigation led to a parliamentary inquiry into the former Strathclyde detective's print.

Another investigation into the print that convicted David Asbury for murder revealed further flaws at the Scottish Criminal Record Office and led to him being released from prison.

Deepcut
The Deepcut programme led to several high level inquiries

Ross McWilliam revealed the link between the deaths of 4 young soldiers at Deepcut training base, leading to several high level inquiries and changes at M.O.D.

Murder. Intimidation. Arson. Just a few of the tactics used by those behind Scotland's unregulated security industry.

In 'Security Wars', Samantha Poling went undercover to confront those involved in this dangerous world of gangsters and guards.

Undercover

Ross McWilliam went undercover to catch the Care Home owners discriminating against the poorest older people and followed families struggling to find the care their elderly relatives desperately need.

Three men were accused of the murder of Arlene Fraser but only one man was convicted - her husband Nat Fraser.
