Dyke Speech on YouTube

A video of a speech about public service broadcasting – made today in Glasgow by the former director-general at the BBC, Greg Dyke – has been posted on the website, YouTube.

Dyke was speaking to an audience of over 200 about his involvement in the setting up of Freeview, his last days at the BBC and about the Scottish Digital Network, a proposed digital TV channel dedicated to Scottish content and the main recommendation of the Scottish Broadcasting Commission, set up three years ago by First Minister, Alex Salmond, amid concerns that not enough Scottish productions were being made for UK-wide, network transmission, mainly on the BBC.

He also speaks about his support for a so-called 'Scottish Six', the long-held wish by some that Scotland has its own, locally-made hour-long news programme, covering not only Scottish, but UK and international news.
