A change to BBC Scotland's homepage

By Ken MacQuarrie, Director, BBC Scotland

At the start of 2011, we announced a project to reshape BBC Online, a major element of which was to deliver "dynamic 'editions' of BBC Online for each Nation" — conceptually similar to, say, the Scottish edition of a daily newspaper.

Today's launch of an edition for Scotland of the BBC homepage represents an extremely important step forward for our audiences in Scotland and beyond.
