As I understand it Alba is played out from Glasgow presentation, but it doesn't have a playout suite to itself.
Alba is played out from Glasgow and shares a suite with CMTX. It is not part of the main Pres Area.
I gather from reading between the lines of the BBC commissioning site that CMTX is a bit like the media hubs in English regions? I'd be interested in some more detail of how BBC Alba is played out from there.
I seem to recall posts from Tony Currie during the Election broadcast talking about Alba's coverage - would they use the spare pres suite for non standard occasions like that?
No, CMTX is in all respects a fully operational pres suite and is now manned by an Announcer-Director, although all the continuity is pre-recorded. Much of the Alba output is live and requires manual intervention - football, shinty, the Mod for example.
