Wasn't sure which thread to put this in, but apparently Reporting Scotland has been finishing early this week like English Regions are for the Party Election Broadcasts, but as the are no such Broadcasts for Scotland pres are using Nigel Slater filler.

If that's correct it seems bizarre for Rep Scot not to do the standard duration.
Write that down in your copybook now.

Agreed! That's bizarre.

Who did Tuesday's Reporting Scotland- Monday was Sally McNair and yesterday i think was Laura MacIver. Next week the schedule shows Laura MacIver presenting Mon-Fri excluding Tuesday when it is Graham then Catronia is doing Mon-Wed the week after. Any news on replacement for Jackie?

Sorry, I know I'm incredibly late to the party here but the opening titles to the Nine are just awful, absolutely dreadful. I completely get what they were trying to achieve but boy it doesn't work.

First time I saw them my reaction was genuinely laughter, which I’m not sure was the intention.

The only reasons I can see that The Nine isn't doing well is that it's on a small digital channel that only has Freeview coverage in Scotland (national coverage on other platforms), plus the scheduling is up against big hitters on the main channels, including those on BBC One Scotland.

IMHO, there's nothing wrong with the editorial policy of the bulletin or the visuals.

In an ideal world, The Nine would become the Scottish Six on BBC One Scotland, so you have this as a tick box exercise to please those who want a Scottish focused world news bulletin on a minority channel instead.
