I have to agree I totally fail to see the point of this, especially when services such as BBC Three have been cut in recent years. A Scottish Six would have ultimately placated more people.
I give it five years.
I can just imagine the thoughts of someone at the BBC right now.
'Ere, David - this Scotland channel needs some idents, what we gonna do? There's no budget - we can't even afford a turntable and some wooden characters'. 'No worries Jim, some Martin Parr guy's just dropboxed me some iPhone footage of 6 men in kilts standing around in the Highlands. Sorry, it's actually 5 men and 1 woman who resembles Nicola Sturgeon, apparently he wasn't allowed to just use men in the shot. Oh, wait a minute, it seems we've also got some video of a group of farmers eating Haggis and singing Auld Lang Syne as well'. 'Oh right, that'll do for Christmas and New Year I supppose... but wait - we need a catchy name, we can't afford perfect curve and Oneness has worked so well on the other side. I tell ya what, we'll call it Scot... Scot... - hang on, it's coming, Murray - BBC Murray'. 'Oh, we better not do that, it'll cheese off Fergie'. 'No, i'll tell you what - we'll call it BBC Scotland 24'. 'I get your drift, but, actually I prefer the BBC Scotland channel, but here's the thing - to make it on brand, on the channel itself you must call it BBC Scotland but when trailing it elsewhere you must say The BBC Scotland channel' with a lower case letter C... and, anyone who, in the unlikely event says the wrong thing, has to put one Euro, sorry, pound in a swear box'. 'Excellent, that's settled - now I wonder if we can get that Lambie Nairn bloke to rework that 2 Optics ident from 1992? 'Nah, I preferred those window ones'.
