Wouldn't a repeat at 1830 last night of a 30 minute programme have been the best option - either something from the first five days of the channel or from the BBC1/BBC2 Scotland archives? Or even a BBC2 network programme if the BBC don't want viewers to expect non-sport/politics Scottish programming at that time?
I can understand the rationale for focusing on peak hours, and for using BBC2 as a sustaining service in the afternoon when there is no politics or Scotland-only sport, but such a rigid application of this policy just leads to messy situations. Even if an appropriate opt-out point had been provided, it's still not ideal to be leaving a programme part way through, especially when that programme could have still been viewed on BBC2.
