The Scottish Government’s independence white paper — launched at a press conference with Alex Salmond and Nicola Sturgeon earlier — gets to grips with the really big issues … namely being able to watch Brucie on Strictly.
A partnership between a license fee-funded Scottish broadcaster and the BBC, which would ensure that:
“Current programming like EastEnders, Doctor Who, and Strictly Come Dancing and channels like CBeebies, will still be available in Scotland”
The proposed arrangement would see a Scottish service “based on the staff and assets of BBC Scotland”, which would continue to produce content in partnership with the BBC.
They can keep River City though.
