The Edinburgh Briefing podcast: Listen to how the Capital's Christmas Market scandal unravelled
and live on Freeview channel 276
After breaking the story of heated exchanges between Underbelly and the council in a tranche of emails released under Freedom of Information laws, host Conor Matchett is joined by The Scotsman's arts correspondent Brian Ferguson to discuss the so-called 'Christmas files'.
Emails obtained by the Evening News were published this week with revelations including threats from Underbelly bosses of the cancellation of the Christmas Market, secret safety fears, and moves to avoid reputation damage by the city's planning chief.
There have also been calls for Underbelly's contract to be ripped up from critics.
The podcast looks at the history of the debacle and examines who should have known what, when, and what will happen next to the city's most popular Christmas festival.
