First Minister's Questions is the #scottishparliament Broadcasting team's busiest time of the week. For 45 minutes every Thursday lunchtime it's all hands on deck to make sure everything happening in the Chamber can be seen and heard on SPTV, and today we got to sit in on the Gallery, where a lot of the TV magic happens! We're going to show you all the work the team does to broadcast #fmqs in a special Story nearer #christmas - so keep an eye out if you want to know more! #broadcast #tv #visionmixer #live #politics #scotland #edinburgh

We would like to thank MSPs and supporters for attending last night's members' debate @scotparl Arranged by George Adam MSP As well as this we were delighted that so many MSPs and supporters attended our special MS Week reception afterwards. Today during #fmqs First Minister Nicola Sturgeon wore her MS Society badge as did most other MSPs which we are thrilled about!

This week's #ParliamentPeople features a very familiar face around #Holyrood! We caught up with Presiding Officer Ken Macintosh MSP in the Debating Chamber to find out about him and his job! 👇🏾 . 🔷What is your job, and what do you like about working at the #ScottishParliament? . If you watch our weekly First Minister’s Questions you might think my job is simply to keep boisterous MSPs in line, but as #PresidingOfficer, I am more likely to be supporting or encouraging well behaved and respectful colleagues than reprimanding them. Chairing meetings of the #parliament or choosing questions and speakers is all about fairness and ensuring every Member gets the opportunity to speak up on behalf of the people they represent. . I have a couple of other roles too in that I chair the two key committees which oversee the running of the organisation and the selection of Parliamentary business and I also represent the Scottish Parliament at home and abroad. . To say it is interesting would be like saying @Andymurray can play tennis, but the best part is simply working with such bright, motivated, public-spirited and inspiring people. And yes, I include my fellow MSPs in that description too. . 🔷What's one thing people should know about the Parliament? . Twenty years after #scotland voted for #devolution, it's good to remember that it's still your Parliament. It doesn’t belong to MSPs or political parties. It's not just a building in Edinburgh. Whether you want to raise an issue, write a petition, visit in person, or simply find out information about MSPs or the public services which affect your life, there will be someone here who can help and advise you. . 🔷What's the best thing on your desk? . I’ve got a number of buttons and controls which sound bells, switch microphones on and off, or tell me who wants to speak next, but my favourite is still the #gavel. . “Order! Order!” . Thanks for speaking to us Ken! 👋🏼. You can catch him every week in the Debating Chamber on #Scottish Parliament TV (parliament.scot/tv) 📺or if you're in #Edinburgh, grab tickets for debates and #fmqs to see him in person from the public gallery! Hit the link in our bio to find out more!👆🏿

Sophie has been working here since last July and this is her last week! Find out about her work in this week's #ParliamentPeople: . 🔷What is your job, and what do you like about working at the #ScottishParliament? . I'm a Web and Social Media Officer - part of a small team that runs the Parliament's Twitter and Facebook accounts and websites and we advise on social media plans with other departments and various other digital things. I've also been managing the @scotparl Instagram for the past year, until a couple of weeks ago. (Hi everyone 👋🏼 thanks for following us! You're all excellent.) My favourite thing about working here is getting to connect people to the Parliament and showcasing all the cool things, work and staff that might not normally be highlighted. . 🔷What's one thing people should know about the the Parliament? . That you can affect what happens here! Democracy makes everyone powerful and there's so many ways you can get involved with the Parliament - emailing one of your 8 MSPs about something that matters to you, watching #FMQs, visiting us and, most importantly, by voting! . 🔷What's the best thing on your desk? . This photo that was taken by @wildswimmer. I had all of the #SeeingScotland shortlist pinned up around my desk in November and this one stayed up. It reminds me of what can be achieved in a short amount of time when things get a bit busy, and to keep an eye out for photo opportunities everywhere! It's a lovely picture. . 👏🏾Thanks Sophie! Good luck with your next adventures! As Sophie says, you can affect what happens here, find out more at http://bit.ly/yourvoicesp . #edinburgh #scotland #scottishparliament #scotparl #staff #photography #socialmedia
