Scotland have yet to play a competitive match under manager Craig Levein

BBC Scotland will broadcast live television coverage of all four away fixtures in Scotland's European Championship qualifying campaign.

Manager Craig Levein's competitive debut away to Lithuania on 3 September will be shown live on BBC ONE Scotland.

The matches against Czech Republic on 8 October 2010, and the double-header against Lichtenstein and Spain on 8 and 12 October 2011 will also be broadcast.

The BBC has also agreed a new deal to broadcast live matches on radio.

The new agreement with the Scottish Football Association means BBC Scotland will provide radio commentary of Scottish Cup matches and Scotland's home internationals for the next four years.

The radio contract complements the recently announced agreement with the SFA to screen a minimum of five live Scottish Cup games, including the final, and highlights of all home internationals.

BBC Scotland has also renewed and agreement to screen live four Co-operative Insurance Cup matches, including the final, for a further three years.

Ewan Angus, Head of Sport, BBC Scotland, said: "We are delighted we will be able to show our audiences full live coverage of all the away games in the national team's campaign."
