The BBC has announced plans to launch a new dedicated TV

?30 million a year will be invested in the project

with the service expected to start in Autumn 2018.

It will include a news hour at 9 o'clock after the BBC rejected

the idea of a so-called Scottish Six.

the Director General, Tony Hall, promised to do more to address

:02:00.:02:03.

concerns some people have about the way the BBC represents Scotland. He

came here today to set up the detail. I think it is fair to say

that both inside and outside this building he caught plenty of

people of that's right, Jackie, today the BBC has turned the camera

that means a new dedicated TV channel. The right way to give

viewers in Scotland choice is to mirror what we do on radio. In the

:02:41.:02:45.

morning I listen to the Today programme or good morning Scotland

:02:46.:02:48.

and I believe that is what we are now offering in TV as well. I'm

:02:49.:02:54.

excited by that because I think an important ingredient for any

is an immensely, an immensely creative place. What about the view

on the streets? And Scottish but and British. I don't watch Scottish

central to the change and it sees the return of, and comedy, and look

:03:25.:03:28.

forward to more of that. If it introduces more work for the people

of Scotland that's the most important thing. It will be Mrs

the return of the news slot. But with a twist, a Scottish Nine,

:03:38.:03:40.

covering stories around the globe but no Scottish Six. For some people

:03:41.:03:43.

but as a missed opportunity. If you tune in at 6pm to a typical news

programme they will lead on an English story and then there will

BBC network audience, an extra ?20 million a year is being invested to

:04:13.:04:18.

do more of an English transport story and perhaps an English

:04:19.:04:20.

education story. Great for the people of England, not good enough

:04:21.:04:21.

education story. Great for the for the people of Scotland. Another

:04:22.:04:24.

thorny issue for those in charge is the licence fee, compared to other

devolved nations is smaller percentage of the money raised in

year is being invested to do more of so, could Scotland for example

:04:36.:04:37.

recreate a Welsh success story? What we do want to do is attract some of

:04:38.:04:40.

our Scottish talent back yes we can see the likes of Steven Moffat, the

:04:41.:04:42.

great Scottish writer, maybe he'll do something for us in the future

:04:43.:04:56.

but it must not be run on a shoestring. MSP the Scottish

:04:57.:04:59.

Government welcomed the announcement today but questioned the budget for

:05:00.:05:01.

the proposed new channel. We estimated it would cost ?75 million

:05:02.:05:03.

to deliver so the ?30 million announced, however welcome, may fall

:05:04.:05:04.

short of what is required. So announced, however welcome, may fall

:05:05.:05:07.

welcome a new Scottish TV channel but it must not be run on a

:05:08.:05:10.

shoestring. MSPbe able to quiz Tony for tomorrow when he faces a

:05:11.:05:11.

Holyrood committee. The aim is to for tomorrow when he faces a

:05:12.:05:13.

have the new channel up and running in 18 months' time.

:05:14.:05:15.

Well our political editor Brian Taylor joins us now from Holyrood.

:05:16.:05:17.

Broadcasting and the Scottish Six have been a source of much

:05:18.:05:20.

Does today's announcement address some of the concerns?

:05:21.:05:23.

Reporting Scotland, I think the response at Holyrood and the

:05:24.:05:29.

response generally from the body politic has been notably warm. It

:05:30.:05:33.

can be remarkably disarming to say yes, remember that the idea of a

:05:34.:05:38.

distinctive Scottish channel was piloted by a commission set up by

:05:39.:05:42.

the first SNP government ten years ago, that idea of a distinctive

:05:43.:05:47.

Scottish channel was demanded as recently as 2015 by the First

:05:48.:05:50.

Minister said the BBC is saying twice yes, eventually. And I think

:05:51.:05:55.

that's having a really good response at Holyrood. There are

:05:56.:06:12.

important and significant caveats in I think the response at Holyrood and

:06:13.:06:17.

the response generally from the body politic has been notably warm. It

:06:18.:06:19.

can be remarkably disarming to say yes, remember that the idea of a

:06:30.:06:31.

that's having a really good response at Holyrood. There are important and

:06:32.:06:33.

significant caveats in that response. You heard that response

:06:34.:06:35.

about the money, that will undoubtedly be pursued by the

:06:36.:06:37.

Scottish Government and others. Across the party 's response is

:06:38.:06:39.

definitely positive. I think it's significant that the formal

:06:40.:06:41.

statements put out by the Scottish Government and compared with former

:06:42.:06:43.

tweets, did not mention the Scottish Six. They were talking with those

:06:44.:06:46.

caveats about the proposals advanced by the BBC. It seems that today,

:06:47.:06:48.

perhaps for once, the BBC has said yes and Holyrood is smiling then I

:06:49.:06:51.

lay today! No doubt normal service will soon be resumed!

:06:52.:06:52.

Weather warnings have been upgraded ahead of the arrival of Storm Doris

More councils have been setting their council tax

:08:39.:08:40.

Aberdeen has just become the fifth council to voluntarily

:08:41.:08:44.

decide not to put up the basic rate - even though this means they're

:08:45.:08:47.

adding to the pressure on their finances.

In all but three council areas, the council tax should

An independent watchdog has said Police Scotland has made

:08:58.:08:59.

"substantial improvements" in its use of stop and search.

:09:00.:09:01.

The Inspector of Constabulary says the controversial use

:09:02.:09:03.

of so-called consensual searches has almost ceased.

:09:04.:09:04.

There's been a 67% reduction in the practice,

The 31-year-old's legacy was debated at Holyrood today.

The Scottish government announced it would fund a ?25,000

Almost half of Scottish charities saw reduced turnover last year,

:09:38.:09:40.

and of those who did record growth, most were large organisations.

:09:41.:09:43.

A report from the Scottish Council for Voluntary Organisations also

:09:44.:09:45.

reveals that charities are expecting demand for their

:09:46.:09:47.

Our social affairs correspondent Reevel Alderson reports.

:09:48.:09:51.

A face-lift for a daycare centre for dementia sufferers

:09:52.:09:54.

The charity said it could not afford contractors to do the work outside.

:09:55.:10:01.

So it called in volunteers, all former offenders.

:10:02.:10:03.

A lot of people after they come out the other side of the criminal

:10:04.:10:17.

justice system, they find it hard to find employment or

:10:18.:10:19.

This scheme operated by Apex said by offering former offenders work it

:10:20.:10:30.

takes the risk out of potential employers by giving the men

:10:31.:10:35.

Apex has learned it has lost its funding

:10:36.:10:38.

It is a familiar story for charities, who a report says

:10:39.:10:42.

Almost half of Scottish charities saw income falling last year.

:10:43.:10:45.

Those who did record increases were mainly large organisations

:10:46.:10:48.

with turnover of more than half a million.

:10:49.:10:59.

72% of charities forecast increased demand for their services this year.

:11:00.:11:03.

Morag Kinniburgh, they said they were unable to plan because yet they

:11:04.:11:08.

said they were unable to plan because funding was planned normally

:11:09.:11:21.

for one year. So much of their time is spent working through the

:11:22.:11:25.

mechanisms we have to go so much of their time is spent working through

:11:26.:11:30.

the mechanisms we have to go through doing is spending time on working

:11:31.:11:34.

out how to do these contracts these contracts happen. It is a real

:11:35.:11:37.

problem because what we would like to be doing is spending time on

:11:38.:11:46.

working out how to do these contracts the Scottish Council for

:11:47.:11:48.

voluntary organisations which produced the report is lobbying

:11:49.:11:50.

ministers to change the way charities receive funding. And is

:11:51.:11:59.

short-sighted, costing the a model that makes it easier for charities

:12:00.:12:05.

especially smaller ones to become sustainable costing local and

:12:06.:12:07.

national government lots of time and effort. We really need to rethink

:12:08.:12:10.

this and go on to a three year cycle of funding a model that makes it

of our most elusive neighbours. The Scottish wildcat population has

plummeted in recent decades. This team is trying to protect that

:12:53.:12:56.

handful that remain. What we hoped to find was evidence

we still had some wildcats Fortunately, we have found some

wildcats clinging on, Feral cats have been captured from

all across this part of Scotland. This one in particular has been high

:13:12.:13:19.

on the list of targets. Judging by the marking patterns

:13:20.:13:23.

and the overall physique of the cat it is definitely a cat

:13:24.:13:29.

of domestic origin. The scary thing is it was living

:13:30.:13:36.

right next to a really good wildcat. It was important to get it

:13:37.:13:44.

caught and neutered. This pop-up clinic has been set up

:13:45.:13:47.

in a resident summerhouse. They checked on disease before

being neutered and released. We know domestic cats

and feral domestic cats are a major threat to wildcats

because of hybridisation Without reducing the population

of the cats, we would be unable to secure the future

for the Scottish wildcat. The landscape of Morvern

is ideal territory for cats. They have got plenty of cover,

have had one lately, just not in the past... I think we will win, 2-1

:17:10.:17:15.

Hibs, probably. I think Hibs will do it tonight. Play well, no reason why

:17:16.:17:20.

we cannot do it. Same as last season, two in a row. After the

result at Tynecastle, easy. The pitch was bad and stuff. Is dad

confident? Very confident, aye, definitely. Jason Cummings

:17:35.:17:40.

hat-trick, definitely, bring it on. The Hibs fans, as you can see,

:17:41.:17:45.

pretty confident. What about Hearts? You to discuss their chances, the

bookmakers, they will tell you different. I think Hibs, home

advantage, a decent result away at Tynecastle, so they will fancy their

:18:03.:18:07.

chances. As I said earlier, not a great spectacle ten days ago. It

cannot be any worse tonight? That is right, very poor can cancel, little

said this could mean more to one side and the other. Do you buy that?

:18:28.:18:34.

No, it means a much to both. Hibs have the trophy and Hearts will want

:18:35.:18:37.

to take it off them, and if they don't start that tonight, you're

:18:38.:18:44.

not. Allen is off to join our BBC Radio Scotland colleagues. We have

:18:45.:18:50.

the game live this evening. Kick-off is at 7:45pm. Thank you, Chris.

:18:51.:18:54.

Rikki Fulton's comic creation, the Reverend I.M.

:18:55.:18:55.

Jolly, is making a comeback on the stage.

:18:56.:18:57.

Actors Johnny Mac and Liam Dolan have been touring a tribute show

:18:58.:19:00.

to Francie and Josie, the double act Rikki Fulton performed

:19:01.:19:03.

Now they are adding in Scotland's dourest minister.

:19:04.:19:07.

Aileen Clarke looked in on rehearsals.

:19:08.:19:10.

Hello... LAUGHTER

:19:11.:19:27.

My name is Jolly, spelt M-O-R-B-I-D. LAUGHTER

:19:28.:19:34.

His performance closely studied to produce the do list of ministers.

:19:35.:19:40.

What kind of B have you had? Has it been negative, downtrodden? Are ye

:19:41.:20:01.

dancin'? Are ye askin'? I'm asking. To betray him doing that character

:20:02.:20:04.

is really what I am trying to get across and keep that memory alive so

:20:05.:20:07.

that when people come to watch as they say, yes, you did use to do

:20:08.:20:13.

that. Well... That is another year gone. The permission to perform

:20:14.:20:19.

these sketches, though, came from an unusual quarter. We found out that

:20:20.:20:27.

RSPCA were left the rights to the Reverend I M Jolly's sketches by

:20:28.:20:30.

Rikki Fulton. We had to ask them for the rights to perform it. What do

:20:31.:20:36.

they think? They loved it, from the first contact they were over the

:20:37.:20:38.

moon, delighted it was being portrayed again and picked up and of

:20:39.:20:42.

course that it would benefit that RSPCA. There is still some vintage

:20:43.:20:52.

Francie and Josie in the new shorter. What did you think of the

:20:53.:20:57.

school? I hated it, the worst four days of my life. It might make it be

:20:58.:21:03.

time for the return of supercop next? Naw, you listen, pal. This is

:21:04.:21:22.

d your dealin' wi. LAUGHTER

:21:23.:21:34.

-- This is the polis you're dealin' wi.

:21:35.:21:36.

Well, as we've been hearing, Storm Doris is expected to cause

:21:37.:21:40.

Well, the front edge of the weather system has already reached

:21:41.:21:43.

the Northern Isles as these dramatic pictures taken this

:21:44.:21:46.

To give you some idea of the scale, the cliffs you can see are up

:21:47.:21:50.

That is Christopher's Q. Good afternoon. A pleasant afternoon for

:21:51.:21:55.

many, blue skies coming in from our weather watchers. But into the next

:21:56.:21:57.

few hours our attention turns to something altogether more wintry.

:21:58.:21:59.

Rain pushing and at first across the South West, quite heavy for attained

:22:00.:22:02.

through Dumfries and Galloway and perhaps localised flooding. All

:22:03.:22:05.

connected to a deep area of low pressure, which is Storm Doris

:22:06.:22:16.

working its way across the country tonight. And Amber be prepared

:22:17.:22:21.

warning, for the star making its way across the borders, Lanarkshire, and

:22:22.:22:27.

the central area generally. A yellow warning for is around that

:22:28.:22:30.

stretching as far north as the central highlands, so tomorrow

:22:31.:22:33.

morning for central and southern Scotland we are likely to see

:22:34.:22:35.

significant disruption with a combination of rain and snow. Down

:22:36.:22:41.

at sea level, a centimetre or two but giving any elevation we could

:22:42.:22:44.

well see tens of centimetres of snow. High parts of the roads

:22:45.:22:48.

highlighted here, we could well see some destruction, and it would be a

:22:49.:22:58.

really wintry morning for many. Up in Aberdeenshire and parts of

:22:59.:23:02.

Murray, drier but still rain and it is similar for the far north.

:23:03.:23:08.

Hebridean areas, some went there and rain but are the I'll is sitting

:23:09.:23:12.

pretty relatively. That system then slowly pulling away but it will take

:23:13.:23:17.

a while -- the Northern Isles are sitting quite pretty. In terms of

:23:18.:23:23.

temperatures, five or six Celsius at best but with any snow on the ground

:23:24.:23:27.

in the south-east, it will be quite cold. Through the rest of the

:23:28.:23:30.

afternoon into the evening, a weather front in the West with

:23:31.:23:33.

sherry outbreaks of rain, windy around the West Coast as well and

:23:34.:23:36.

that it is in overnight Thursday into Friday. Again, wintry on the

:23:37.:23:44.

high ground -- showery bricks. A ridge of high pressure replacing

:23:45.:23:48.

this and Friday is much better, drier and brighter with some

:23:49.:23:50.

sunshine, but towards the afternoon there will be some further outbreaks

:23:51.:23:54.

of rain arriving from the Atlantic. Temperatures back to where they

:23:55.:23:59.

should be, six, seven, perhaps eight Celsius. To recap, the warning areas

:24:00.:24:03.

for tomorrow morning, that will be the amber alias you can see there,

:24:04.:24:07.

significant disruption from that snow, difficult driving conditions

:24:08.:24:13.

also in law areas, not just the high parts -- the amber areas. Thank you,

:24:14.:24:15.

Chris. Now, a reminder of
