Content head spells out Gaelic TV programming challenge

FINDING niche and distinctive programmes are among the top priorities for the head of content at a soon-to-launch new digital TV station, dedicated to the Gaelic language.

His remarks appear in an interview given to the newsletter of one of the partners in the proposed station.
