Get ready to see in the New Year from the comfort of home

BBC Scotland has an extended Hogmanay offering of music, chat and entertainment plus celebrations from around the country as the country counts down to 2020.

With the surprise retiral of Jackie Bird from BBC Scotland earlier this year, comic Susan Calman fronts the Hogmanay festivities on television this year in an extended offering, including a sofa full of Scotland’s stars to get the party started.

First up is Susan Calman’s Not Quite End of the Year show on the BBC Scotland Channel at 9pm when the popular comedian and writer looks back over 2019 with plenty of music, entertainment and chat. Joining her on the sofa are Scottish movie legend James Cosmo and Guilt star Mark Bonnar.

Some of Scotland’s biggest sporting stars are celebrated too with an appearance from Scottish Women’s National Football team captain Rachel Corsie and boxing world champion Josh Taylor. Classic tunes come from Travis and Twin Atlantic.

On BBC One Scotland, Jack Docherty takes an entertaining look at Scotland’s most memorable adverts in Selling Scotland and will be joined on this archive journey by some of the country’s funniest and best known faces.

As 2019 rapidly approaches the final whistle, on BBC One Scotland, the Only An Excuse? team line up for their annual kick of the ball. New signings joining Jonathan Watson this year include Alex Norton and Joy McAvoy – two of Jonathan’s co-stars from Two Doors Down – Mark Cox from Still Game and Scot Squad’s Louise McCarthy.

In the lead-up to the bells, Susan Calman is back for Hogmanay 2019, this time joined by Des Clarke and Amy Irons, to move the festivities up a gear with an entertainment-packed programme on both BBC One Scotland and BBC Scotland. Line of Duty star Martin Compston and Still Game’s Jane McGarry joins the sofa line-up and the traditional tunes will be provided by award-winning Elephant Sessions along with folk star Julie Fowlis, who’ll lead the crowd in Auld Lang Syne.

Celebrations from around Scotland will be a central part of the show and Des Clarke will be out and about among the crowds in the countdown to the Bells while Amy reports live from Stonehaven’s historic Fireballs Ceremony and drops in to see Bryan Burnett who is hosting the Radio Scotland ceilidh at Stonehaven Town Hall.

On BBC ALBA, Ceilidh na Bliadhn’ Uire/Hogmanay Ceilidh 2019 is live from Motherwell Concert Hall. Hosted by Cathy Macdonald and Niall Iain Macdonald. The programme opens its doors to an array of Gaelic singers and musicians providing ceilidh craic and a sensational playlist to take viewers through the bells and into 2020.
