BBC Licence Fees

2013. The BBC in London took £320m in licence fees from Scotland, and returned £175m to BBC Scotland. BBC Alba, the very successful BBC Scotland Gaelic Language programme gets £8m and only survives with additional support of £12m from the Scottish Government. BBC Scotland is now under orders to cut staff numbers by 120 by 2017. At the same time there is growing evidence of a break with the past following the introduction of more non-Scots presenters.
