I'm not anti-Scottish either. Sadly he who shouts the loudest gets reported the most, whether he's got any worth listening to or not seems not to matter. Tue 09 Sep 2008 17:25:54 GMT+1 gossipmistress What a handsome chap Gillianian!And another good comment when you hover your mouse over the bottom pic! Tue 09 Sep 2008 12:01:34 GMT+1 lovewireless #28 - You should move to BBC "Nowhere Land" - in the South Midlands. We're mainly blessed with news from Norwich or Southampton, with occasional output from the Oxford news "broom cupboard" if we're good! Tue 09 Sep 2008 11:59:26 GMT+1 David_McNickle Aper 26, The BBC TV 'local' news at 6:30 in 'our' area (including St Albans, ha ha) is 99 percent London. (Waits for reply from a BBCer to say it isn't.) Tue 09 Sep 2008 10:22:22 GMT+1 mygloriousleader It just struck me looking at the old piccie of Lord Muir on RepScot how clean the pictures look. No distracting dodgy graphics in the background. London Plus around the same time looked similar. Simple, no nonsense, this is the news. Let the journalism catch your eye and ear. Where has it gone? Tue 09 Sep 2008 09:39:38 GMT+1 Aperitif I have always felt more connected to Scotland than some other parts of England. I suspect a "Radio England" would probably focus on the South East, especially London, and would be pointless for the rest of us... Now then, that rings a bell...

Tue 09 Sep 2008 09:00:20 GMT+1 jonnie Moderated for that! - I really think it's time the BBC looked at the moderation companies contract - cause believe me, in a few years time that sort of moderation won't last! Tue 09 Sep 2008 00:26:59 GMT+1 jonnie This post has been Removed Mon 08 Sep 2008 23:36:00 GMT+1 jonnie I agree with chris_bournemouth, however just to make it clear he's not the one I know. You know - like of Gillian and BigSister :-)The one with the Reindeers I mean.I don't they moan - or in any way are stingy, infact at my Froogers do Fifi was Miss generouisty herself!. Mon 08 Sep 2008 23:32:17 GMT+1 Chris_bournemouth It seems that every day we hear some story related to Scotish independance, or how unhappy these people are. I'm not anti-Scottish, I simply don't want to hear them moan all the time. Are they proud of the fact that the rest of us have to listen to this year after year? Why not have a vote in the rest of the UK and kick these moaners out? If they are in such a rush to throw away hundreds of years of shared history, why should we try to convince that that we are worthy of thier time. At least we could lower the taxes for the rest of us.

Mon 08 Sep 2008 19:29:03 GMT+1 David_McNickle mgl 11, We'll know when Robbie has a leek.... Mon 08 Sep 2008 16:01:07 GMT+1 David_McNickle RJM 8, Give me a treat or I will give you ticks. Very painful. Mon 08 Sep 2008 16:00:05 GMT+1 David_McNickle sp 4, On rare occasions, we could see the aurora borealis (northern lights for mods) in Cleveland, Ohio. Can I have a TV program about it? Mon 08 Sep 2008 15:58:28 GMT+1 Ed Iglehart "Is this some 'scam' to lure you back across the Forth?"On a minor demographic point, probably more than half of Scotland's people live South of the Forth...;-)ed Mon 08 Sep 2008 14:38:44 GMT+1 mygloriousleader Actually there is a EricSeparated at birth?;o)Big Nige Mon 08 Sep 2008 14:15:32 GMT+1 Mrs Effingham Thank you Big Nige for the picture of MacDonald Hobley - those were the days. :0) Mon 08 Sep 2008 13:33:50 GMT+1 Mr-Sharp Anyway, my conclusion is that if the BBC is too British for the English and too English for the Scottish, even the avowed Unionists, perhaps it is time we all went our own ways. Mon 08 Sep 2008 13:26:58 GMT+1 Mr-Sharp Your are right Jonnie. There's far too much Scottish based stuff on the PM programme. I wonder why? Mon 08 Sep 2008 13:22:46 GMT+1 mygloriousleader Tbrid (9) I think it's a leek. Mon 08 Sep 2008 13:15:39 GMT+1 jonnie What shall we discuss on Radio England then? Mon 08 Sep 2008 12:59:41 GMT+1 Thunderbird I'm not big on the flora and forma of Scotland…….. Is that a pansy? Mon 08 Sep 2008 12:56:41 GMT+1 RJMolesworth Gillianian,Since when did English schools have Proms. Is this another American import like Tick or Treat?BTW, what (which or whose) tartan is your son wearing?As for Scottish broadcasting, what will be the remit for Scottish languages I wonder ( I've heard there are at least two other than English)?Should Shetland and Orkney have their own service perhaps? The possibilities are endless.Who should pay? It would be an interesting precedent for the licence fee not to go solely to the BBC. Opens all sorts of possiblities. Some of them unwelcome. Mon 08 Sep 2008 12:53:55 GMT+1 Gillianian Lol! Thanks, Eddie ;o) Mon 08 Sep 2008 12:51:41 GMT+1 jonnie Love the PM airing of Robbie - Gillianian Mon 08 Sep 2008 12:46:58 GMT+1 jonnie Shouldn't they be discussing this on Radio Scotland? Mon 08 Sep 2008 12:18:43 GMT+1 steelpulse Afternoon Eddie. Let us not "split" hairs about broadcasting in Scotland.Norway. The lovely - or should I say "Purdey" Joanna Lumley was fulfilling a lifes ambition in tracking down the Northern Lights. BBC One yesterday.Isn't Peter Kay and Frankie Boyle where they always were? But she was finally seen gazing in wonder at what I suspect most Norwegians shrug at and say - in Norse of course - "So what?" Bright lights caused by cosmic rays hitting Earth's atmosphere. Wonderful spectacle but the one with the ownership of several towns said earlier - "It had to be colder to be seen".So after sleeping in an Ice Hotel - many of those in Scotland? - Joanna listed what clothing she had "on" to keep warm - in order to stand in the cold Norwegian air waiting for the light show.I fell asleep at the fifth layer and her description spoilt a life time of me imagining the opposite for her various and younger screen incarnations.Broadcasting in Norway seems preferably - don't you think? But then I have in my minds eye Joanna lying flat on her back - to get a better view of - eh - the light show!Absolutely fabulous! Mon 08 Sep 2008 12:08:07 GMT+1 Hugh_Z_Hackenbach EricIs this some 'scam' to lure you back across the Forth? You haven't lost the accent, yet.If all the BBC 'scots' return home, there'll be a lot of empty seats in BH. Still, it will give "Jonny-thong Woss" a chance to earn his weekly pittence, eh? Mon 08 Sep 2008 11:58:55 GMT+1 Sindy Can't you just see Eddie looking for an appropriate piccy, then giving up - 'Ah, this'll do!' Mon 08 Sep 2008 11:58:26 GMT+1 Gillianian I love the comment that appears when you hover your mouse over the pic!Still, it beats a picture of Nessie ;o) Mon 08 Sep 2008 11:49:20 GMT+1
