I live in Edinburgh.

At 5pm yesterday, 15th June 2011, without any warning, my Freeview reception of Radio 4 was cut off. Apparently it is no longer available to me in the evenings. I had absolutely no idea this was going to happen and it is a bitter blow.

I have just installed a complete Freeview system, largely on the basis that I would be able to use it to get all my TV and Radio. Now that is all ruined. I have to resort to making do with an old analogue radio and fiddling around with the internet. My complaint is not only that this has happened, but also that apparently no effort appears to have been made by the BBC to warn its Freeview listeners in advance. So I was unable to make any preparations.

But in any case, why should we in Scotland be deprived of the same services that apply to the rest of the UK? We all pay the same licence fee, and should therefore all get the same standard of service, particularly with regard to a mainstream station such as Radio Four.
