If there is to be more licence fee money for dedicated news output in Scotland, it feels like it won't come til the new financial year.

Yesterday BBC Scotland announced the successor to the struggling Scotland 2016, which apparently was winning just 30-35,000 viewers a night at the end. It's to be a weekly show called Timeline, running at 7.30pm on BBC2 in Scotland from the end of January. It will be presented by Glenn Campbell and Shereen Najiani. Shereen, 55, (MA Philosophy, Glasgow) currently hosts a Saturday morning chat show on Radio Scotland, but will be more familiar as anchor of STV's Scotland Today til she took voluntary redundancy in 2006.

The Guardian talks about "ongoing delays" in plans for a "Scottish Six" because BBC executives have "not been able to agreee the case".
