A question for Freeview user in Scotland
BBC Parliament used to be carried as a "quarter screen" service on Freeview. Would you prefer the channel to use this type of format whilst BBC Alba is being broadcast and have the ten radio stations back?
"It is felt to be a more efficient use of space to display BBC Parliament within a text format, with the picture a quarter screen, thus enabling the broadcast of other services.
This is only possible because the majority of camera shots are of one person talking."
One question that was not asked: could BBC Parliament be returned to the "quarter screen plus text" service during the BBC Alba transmission hours, so that the ten radio stations could continue to broadcast?
Yes, without doubt - give me back the radio stations ASAP. BBC ALBA is interesting - sometimes - but I am lucky and can see mountains and lochs from my window, and fiddles and accordions are an acquired, or inherited taste.
omg i just thought i would listen to radio 4 this evening and found no service on freeview. i then found a lot of bbc radio programmes not broadcasting. why not just broadcast parliament as a radio station. this is insanity!
