Call to save radio show

Have your say

INDEPENDENT Lothians MSP Margo MacDonald is leading a campaign calling on the BBC to spare a respected radio show from the axe.

She has won cross-party support for a motion at Holyrood opposing the plan to scrap Saturday morning Radio Scotland programme Newsweek Scotland, presented by Derek Bateman.

She said: “This will deprive listeners of the only remaining in-depth weekly analysis of news and current affairs in the period leading up to the Scottish referendum.”
