Scots trio secure slot to build relations with the BBC in London

THREE independent TV production companies in Scotland have secured slots at a two-day, getting-to-know-you meeting with senior commissioning staff at BBC headquarters in London.

Following a UK-wide invitation, Truevision North, One Eyed Dog and Hand Pict are to be among over a dozen indies from outside London being invited to take part.

It is the latest initiative by BBC bosses to ensure the Corporation is not too London-centric.
