The BBC has signed up to the UK rights to broadcast the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow.

The deal means the corporation will broadcast events on television and radio and provide online coverage for the home nations.

The BBC has also agreed to work with the organisers in appointing a host production broadcaster which will film and record the sporting events.

No price is publicly being attached to the deal.

As well as broadcasting all the sporting action from the games, BBC Scotland will also show additional programming previewing the event.

Director of BBC Scotland Ken MacQuarrie said: "BBC Scotland will have a special role at the heart of our coverage in giving the games extensive exposure in Scotland across our dedicated TV, radio and online services - all of which will help make the 2014 games a truly momentous occasion in Scotland."
