There will be plenty of drama, comedy and old favourites screened on the new BBC Scotland channel. Here are some of the best shows to look forward to...

Still Game: The ninth and final series of the much-loved sitcom will bow out 22 years after Jack and Victor first appeared at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe – although fans will be able to bid them one final farewell in a last live show at the Hydro in Glasgow later in the year.

Scot Squad: Like Still Game, the new batch of six episodes of the Bafta-Scotland award-winning sitcom will be shown on the new BBC Scotland channel first, with Lorraine Kelly, Chick Young, Sally Magnusson and Tom Hunter among the confirmed guests.

The Grey Area: Garry Fraser, the Muirhouse-born filmmaker famously offered the chance to help Danny Boyle make his Trainspotting sequel in Edinburgh, has created his own hour-long drama tackling the consequences of gang violence and drugs in one of the city’s most deprived communities.

Clique: Jess Brittain’s Edinburgh-set psychological thriller – which is set in and around a university campus in the city – gets its BBC Scotland debut after winning huge acclaimed from fans after being shown on BBC Three.

Getting Hitched Asian Style: The three-part series goes behind the scenes to see the firm Saffron Events stage a series of spectacular weddings for up to 500 guests over the summer.

Guilt: Two brothers try to cover up the death of a man they ran over on their way home from a wedding – but find their lives falling apart as the past catches up on them.

Prophecy: Filmed over four months and focusing on a single oil painting, the film will explore the techniques of Peter Howson, the celebrated Ayrshire artist.
