YOU have to admire the BBC. Stung by recent criticism that its network news is too London-centric, it has made a real effort, these last few days, to incorporate more Scottish news stories into its UK bulletins.

On TV, there’s been Scottish correspondent, Andrew Cassell, reporting from Armadale, in West Lothian, on curbing alcohol misuse, and a radio report about a sexy-sounding French public address announcer at Haymarket rail station, in Edinburgh.

And yesterday, Radio Five Live previewed a conference about seagulls, taking place in Dumfriesshire, in the town of, er… Fife’s Kirkcaldy.

Give ‘em time.
