As Lord Hall prepares for next week's interrogation by the Scottish Parliament's Education and Culture Committee, what joy for the BBC to be able to announce 'bonanza' coverage of the upcoming Celtic Connections folk and world music festival in Glasgow.

Mark Radcliffe's Radio 2 coverage is up from two live shows last year to two live shows and one with recorded highlights. Radio 3 has three world music programmes and one concert recording - up from two visits last time. BBC Two Scotland has two highlight shows, unchanged from two last year.

Yesterday the Committee sharpened its Charter Renewal teeth on three Professors and one BBC Trustee, Bill Matthews. One angry prof wanted Edinburgh Festival coverage brought up to the level of Glastonbury.
