    In September 2014 the people of Scotland will be asked whether they want to become an independent sovereign state. It's not often that a 300-year-old union is broken. The vote will have ramifications far beyond Scotland, the United Kingdom as we know it could be no more. So will Scots vote with their heads or their hearts?

Is this a once in a lifetime opportunity for Scotland to break free from a tired political cycle and create a modern state, based on Scottish values? Julie MacDonald discusses with guests.
