around the clock around the world

In a few hours, the people of Scotland will face their most important decision. 97% of the electorate has registered to vote, and it will without doubt be the biggest turnout the polling stations have ever seen. We'll be covering the Referendum results with a number of special bulletins, starting at 21:00 GMT tomorrow (10pm in Scotland) when the polls close. We'll give you a brief history of Scotland and explain how its citizens came to be casting their votes. Then on Friday morning, we're live at 07:00 GMT (8am UK, 9am Europe, 7pm New Zealand) by which time the final result may have been announced. The timetable for the declarations from all 31 councils in Scotland suggests the final result (expected from Aberdeen City Council) around 6am UK, but with 4,285,323 registered voters, it might take a little longer to reach a conclusion. In any event, we'll return at 08:00 GMT (9am UK, 10am Europe) with another live bulletin. If the result still hasn'e been declared, we'll stay with you until it is, interrupting Sequent Sounds as necessary.
At 19:00 GMT on Friday(8pm UK, 9pm Europe) we'll provide a summary of the result, and that will be repeated on Saturday morning at 07:00 GMT for the benefit of our affiliate networks in New Zealand and Taiwan.

Website updated at 20:00 GMT on Wednesday, 17th September, 2014. Random Playlist updated; Programme details updated.
