Annual Report 2018/19

MG ALBA has requested an urgent review of Gaelic broadcasting whilst launching its 2018-19 Annual Report.

The organisation that operates Scotland’s Gaelic-language television channel in partnership with the BBC has called upon the BBC, Ofcom, the Scottish Government and the UK government to engage in a dialogue aimed at reaching a new settlement for Gaelic broadcasting.

Currently, BBC ALBA is severely challenged by a 75% repeat rate, whilst 50% is the expected limit for BBC Scotland; and is available only in standard definition (SD) on television.

Writing in his Chair’s Message, Allan MacDonald states that “there is no acceptable basis for Gaelic speaking viewers to have a second-class service.”

Aithisg Bhliadhnail 2018/19

Le bhith foillseachadh Aithisg Bhliadhnail na buidhne airson 2018-19, tha MG ALBA air iarraidh lèirmheas sa bhad de chraoladh Ghàidhlig.

Tha am buidheann a tha a’ ruith seanail Ghàidhlig na h-Alba ann an co-bhanntachd leis a’ BhBC air iarraidh air a’ BhBC, Ofcom, Riaghaltas na h-Alba agus Riaghaltas na RA a dhol an sàs ann an conaltradh ag amas air a bhith a’ tighinn gu rèite ùr a thaobh craoladh Gàidhlig.

An-dràsta, tha fìor dhùbhlan mu choinneimh BBC ALBA, le ìre ath-chraolaidh de 75% an coimeas ri rìoch de 50% ris a bheil dùil airson BBC Scotland; agus chan eil an t-seanail ri fhaighinn ach air Deifinisean Coitcheann (SD) a-mhàin air telebhisean.

A’ sgrìobhadh ann an Teachdaireachd a’ Chathraiche, thuirt Ailean Dòmhnullach nach eil stèidh sam bith a bhiodh iomchaidh airson luchd-amhairc na Gàidhlig a bhith a’ faighinn seirbheis aig ìre nas ìsle.”
