It was reported yesterday that the SNP has written to the BBC in an attempt to revive the idea of a dedicated ‘Scottish Six’ national news programme.
Last night’s Newsnight interview with Alex Salmond about the Libyan prisoner transfer row will have given them plenty of ammunition about the way the London BBC covers Scotland. Kirsty Wark is normally a good interviewer, but her hectoring performance here will have increased concerns about her links to the Scottish Labour Party. It would be interesting to know who was responsible for the editorial angle, that the Libyan story was primarily about SNP picking a fight with London.
Update: BBC News blog The Editors has a thread on the interview.
