One thing that I don't think has been mentioned yet, which I hadn't realised until I saw this page, is that the new channel:

Between noon and 7pm, the channel will show BBC Two programmes alongside some political coverage (such as Scottish First Minister’s Questions and Politics Scotland) and sporting & music events.

So in the afternoon it's as BBC Two Scotland is now, I wondered what was going to happen to the Scottish stuff that's on in the afternoons

I refer the learned Inspector to this post ....

Because the channel is authorised from 1900 only, with the exception of regular Political, Irregular Sporting and occasional Cultural programming.

Still, it's a bit odd that they'll be stimulating BBC Two rather than closing down/showing "This is BBC Scotland" instead, especially given how close the two channels will be on the EPG.

Yes although if they did that, it would pop on air for an hour for the political programme and then close down again. This way it gives it a full regular schedule of content all afternoon.


There was a time when TV stations would do that - BBC 2 used to have nothing on for 12 hours a day except 20 minutes of Play School at 10am. Its not something the audience is used to these days
