New Scottish Broadcasting Service possibility

A new Scottish Broadcasting Service (SBS) could initially be based on the staff and assets of BBC Scotland, according to the White Paper.

The SBS could then enter into a formal arrangement with the BBC, whereby it would supply it with programming in return for continuing access to BBC services in Scotland.

The White Paper says: "This will ensure the people of Scotland will still have access to all current programming, including EastEnders, Doctor Who and Strictly Come Dancing, and to channels like CBeebies."
