Regarding the headline bed. Every single day without fail the titles of the Six O'Clock News is cut in half by Reporting Scotland's healine slot. I wouldn't bring it up but it just gets annoying because it looks like someone not doing their job properly time after time.

Anyone else find this mildly annoying? It seems to mainly affect the six.

I notice this on the 1 often. Also, they usually continue to play the headline bed until around 3 seconds into the titles. Very annoying as you said.

Accorging to a story HERE the BBC Scotland is changing the way it does reports by getting reporters to edit their own stories. MSP's disapprove apparently. Does anyone know the background to this story? Aren't reporters editing their own stories the norm nowadays (I know Grampian has done it for a while). Why all the fuss?

The exact quote is

Quote:

Meanwhile, the Scottish Executive has reportedly approved plans to streamline BBC Scotland's news services, despite opposition from some MSPs to the plans.

It is intended that a team of 36 journalists spread around the country will shoot and edit their own reports for the Reporting Scotland programme and for online and digital TV news services, Broadcast magazine said.


Found another article about it in the Scotman here. Still no reference to why MSPs are objecting. Maybe less coverage of them.
