Thread Name: Scottish Trad. Awards on T.V.
Subject: RE: Scottish Trad. Awards on T.V.
The BBC as a whole should be a bit less interested in competing with ITV etc over ratings and get back to actually being more of a service. We all miss out from the under-representation of English folk performers on TV. Wouldn't it be great if after doing Transatlantic Sessions and the Highland Sessions, BBC Scotland did a series on Both Sides The Tweed Sessions? Bring a host of English performers up to that farm house in Perthsire or wherever it is! But yes as you said why on earth doesn't even one of the BBC Regions in England come up with their own programme? Maybe they do and I've never picked up on it of course?
