Wings Over Scotland Youtube shutdown is an embarrassment to BBC Scotland presenters and producers
There’s still no named person we can email or phone to discuss the subject.
Ian Small is still the only person at the BBC to have stuck his head above the parapet and take any responsibility for the incident, and reading between the lines of his comments we strongly suspect that he had nothing to do with it and was simply running to catch up live on air. Those who actually made all the key decisions remain anonymous and unaccountable, in the BBC’s trademark style.
Several BBC Scotland presenters and producers deserve credit for attempting to grasp the thistle and get to the bottom of the matter. We don’t think they’ve suddenly become pro-independence or fans of Wings, but they’ve been professionally embarrassed at the events that have unfolded over their heads and want some answers.
