Pure Magic was commissioned for BBC Scotland but premieres on BBC1 Scotland instead. Shows how much faith people have in the channel.

That is exactly the opposite that the BBC is saying about the channel! They keep saying it's a ''massive success'' it's ridiculous! I am now seriously wondering for how long the BBC is going to keep up with all of this.....

Debate Night's new slot hasn't achieved anything for the programme unless viewing figures have doubled from 20k to 40k, thus it doesn't show up on BARB.

River City will air twice weekly on BBC Scotland from January with episodes going out on Monday and Wednesday. These will be repeated Tuesday and Friday on BBC One Scotland.

So in order to raise viewing figures they have now moved River City to this channel....that was expected, the BBC is now trying to do everything that it possibly can in order to save the channel.....I wonder if this will be enough to save it

River City has always premiered on the channel since its inception. Get a grip, your obsession is tedious.

There is a point to be made that River City premiering on the channel does generate it viewers, certainly more so than some innocuous documentary.
Roger Darthwell and London Lite gave kudos

BBC Scotland to proceed onto series 6 of Still Game soon yet interestingly they will miss out the first episode "Hot Seat".

Perhaps it's seen as bad taste showing people enjoying getting out to the park?

Hot Seat was broadcast recently on BBC Scotland and in October on BBC One NI.

So was "Smoke On The Water" from Series 5 but that was later shown on BBC Scotland.

BBC Scotland announcer Dominic Main has posted this video on TikTok showing a little 'behind the scenes' at Pacific Quay presentation suites. Not a long video but interesting none the less. https://www.tiktok.com/@announcerdom/video/6919978206284057858
