Sturgeon calls for more BBC autonomy in Scotland after 'less than fully informed' referendum coverage28 Aug 2015
Scotland must get a dedicated BBC television channel to counter the often "ill-informed" coverage of London-based journalists who have "totally failed" to cover constitutional change, First Minister Nicola Sturgeon has demanded. As a minimum, Sturgeon called for BBC editors based within Scotland to have greater ability to influence UK reporting, a specific Scottish site for iPlayer programmes, Scottish Parliament oversight for the BBC in Scotland, greater use of Scottish opt-outs, and more powers for the BBC commissioners based in Scotland, during her Alternative MacTaggart lecture at the Edinburgh International Television Festival.
