Re: BBC Parliament Scotland

I don't think they need to launch it as a new channel exactly.

Just a programme block during the day, as sometimes it comes on randomly at 14:15-15:00 and cuts out mid speech and goes to the info for 4 hours.

I think that's why BBC Parliament Scotland can be justified given that it has significant powers.

One option might be for it to operate in the downtime hours of BBC Scotland. This would mean that all live coverage can be shown but no additional multiplex space on Freeview would be required.

Re: BBC Parliament Scotland

A decision for the Scottish Parliament really, not something that can be decided on a forum.

No one suggested this forum will decide it, its simply a poll.

That was exactly my point, it all seems a bit pointless. Why have an opinion on whether the BBC should do something the Scottish Parliament might not even approve?


Fun for some maybe but still pointless.

Re: BBC Parliament Scotland

Why not ?

You may as well say whats the point of any poll ?
They rarely make actual decisions, they are for interest or information.

And probably would say that. Opinion polls can have some value to a developer when considering something that is actually being planned.

How would you value that information? How is it useful to know that x% of the participants whatever forum would support blah blah? The low number of users participating means the results won't even represent the views of forum users, not to mention the general public.

Users often mock such polls with comments such as "are you high?". Hardly taking the subject matter seriously.

Maybe there should be a poll on how valuable/useful forum users find these polls.

In one sentence you have both stated, and yet completely missed, the point.

Re: BBC Parliament Scotland

Maybe you need another hobby instead of wasting so much time in a poll you're not interested in.

True but it is on forums such as this where views can be obtained from decision makers, no matter what the subject might be, and thereby help to shape how the general public might react to, and feel about, a particular issue.
