Trinkets and beads

Some odds and ends from Lord Hall's opening offer to pacify the Education and Culture Committee of the Scottish Parliament...

He talked about sustaining (not, you note, increasing) production in Scotland; he promised a review of news coverage in Scotland, including the idea of a Scottish Six, reporting 'in spring'; he said as well as a Scottish homepage for online news, there would be new Scottish front-ends for the iPlayer, for BBC Sport, and the main BBC landing page. He promised new and interesting coverage of the Edinburgh Festival. And said he believed a future re-vamped BBC unitary board would have someone representing Scotland.
