£75 million for Scottish Channel


by David Allen

In a report by the Scottish Broadcasting Commission, set up by Alex Salmond, the First Minister of Scotland, it has been recommended that an exclusively Scottish channel dedicated to public service broadcasting should be set up using taxpayer’s money.

There are no figures to support how many viewers are going to be watching this channel should it get the go ahead, or whether this channel would offer good value for money.

Recently regional TV has been suffering, as the main broadcasters commit to programming produced in the south of the UK.

They have come under fire for this practice and are already making plans to address the current situation.

The commission also said that 8.6 per cent of the programming produced by the BBC and Channel 4 should be made with a Scottish flavour; this would go in line with the population of Scotland.
