OPEN LETTER FROM MG ALBA

This is an important time for broadcasting, particularly for Gaelic, because the BBC’s new Royal Charter, which will last 11 years, is currently being written.

MG ALBA believes that the BBC should invest more in the channel in order that a more complete service can be delivered, with fewer repeats. Currently the schedule is 74% reliant on repeats.

We are therefore seeking your help again, to ensure that there are meaningful commitments in the Charter documents on the BBC’s commitment to BBC ALBA. There will not be another Charter until 2028.

LITIR FHOSGAILTE BHO MG ALBA

A chàirdean chòir

’S e àm cudromach a tha seo do chraoladh, agus do Ghàidhlig gu seach àraid, oir tha Cairt Rìoghail ùr a’ BhBC, a mhaireas aona-bhliadhna-deug, ga sgrìobhadh an-dràsta.

Tha MG ALBA am beachd gum bu chòir dhan BhBC a bhith a’ cur barrachd dhan t-seanail, gus an tèid againn seirbheis nas treasa a lìbhrigeadh, le nas lugha de dh’ath-chraolaidhean. An-dràsta tha an clàr 74% an urra ri ath-chraolaidhean.

Ri linn sin, tha sinn a’ sireadh ur taic a-rithist, airson dèanamh cinnteach gum bi geallaidhean brìghmhor ann am pàipearan a’ Chairt mu na tha am BBC dol a chur ri BBC ALBA. Cha bhi Cairt eile ann gu 2028.
