Dumb kids' TV

Sir: Will Wyatt makes a decent case for the BBC as a modern public service broadcaster (Podium, 3 March).

However, when he says that "Parliament" is one of the key areas of development, he clearly doesn't include the Scottish Parliament. The BBC's attitude is shown by its arrogant refusal to allow BBC Scotland to produce its own 6 o'clock television news programme containing national, British and international news. The BBC will find many Scots tuning into STV for information on their new national parliament.
