CHARTER REFERENCE TO GAELIC BROADCASTING WELCOMED BUT MORE BBC ALBA INVESTMENT STILL NEEDED

MG ALBA today welcomes the express reference to Gaelic broadcasting set out in the new draft BBC Royal Charter while urging the BBC to build on the success of BBC ALBA with increased investment in the channel.

MG ALBA has urged the BBC to make a formal commitment to increasing the amount of original programming made for BBC ALBA from 4.5 hours per week to 10 hours – to achieve parity with the Welsh TV channel, S4C. At present MG ALBA commissions work from over 20 independent production companies based in Scotland.

The need for a stronger BBC commitment to Gaelic broadcasting has achieved widespread political and industry support, with motions in both the Westminster and Scottish Parliaments, questions of ministers, Select Committee endorsement , an online video campaign led by the author Peter May, an online petition and many, many letters to the BBC in support of MG ALBA’s request , including from Scotland’s Deputy First Minster.

BBC ALBA, which is operated by a partnership between the BBC and MG ALBA, the Gaelic Media Service, has attracted audiences of around 700,000 and enjoys widespread support. The performance of the channel exceeded all expectations of the BBC Trust which set the remit for the channel.

MG ALBA wants to reduce significantly the number of repeats on BBC ALBA.

Donald Campbell, MG ALBA Chief Executive said: ”This Charter and Framework Agreement set out an explicit commitment to Gaelic broadcasting and say the BBC should continue to support the provision of output in Gaelic in Scotland, and should provide a television service through its partnership with MG ALBA. We welcome this reference to Gaelic broadcasting and the Secretary of State’s statement that the UK Government wishes to ensure that BBC ALBA has the resources it needs.

“The next step for us is to secure increased BBC investment. We are clear that the BBC needs to significantly increase its commitment to the channel for BBC ALBA to thrive and strengthen its offering of original and creative programming to its audiences. We look forward to working with the BBC to achieve that and believe added investment will benefit the creative industries in Scotland as well as serving the needs of our audience.”

FÀILTE AIR IOMRADH SA CHAIRT RÌOGHAIL AIR CRAOLADH GÀIDHLIG ACH BARRACHD SHEILBHEACH FHATHAST A DHÌTH AIRSON BBC ALBA

Tha MG ALBA an-diugh a’ cur fàilte air an iomradh air craoladh Gàidhlig a chaidh fhoillseachadh ann an dreach Cairt Rìoghail ùr a’ BhBC, fhad ’s aig an aon àm a’ cur ìmpidh air a’ BhBC togail air soirbheas BBC ALBA le tuilleadh sheilbheach san t-seanail.

Tha MG ALBA air iarraidh air a’ BhBC dealas foirmeil a thoirt seachad airson àrdachadh san àireamh de phrògraman ùra airson BBC ALBA bho 4.5 uair a thìde gach seachdain gu 10 uairean – gus co-ionnanachd a ruighinn leis an t-seanail Chuimreach S4C. An-dràsta, tha MG ALBA a’ coimiseanadh phrògraman bho chòrr is 20 companaidh neo-eisimeileach stèidhichte ann an Alba.

Tha am feum airson dealas nas làidire bhon BhBC airson craoladh Gàidhlig air taic fhaighinn bho air feadh na roinn phoilitigeach agus bho air feadh a’ ghnìomhachais, le gluasadan anns an dà Phàrlamaid, ceistean gan cur air ministearan, taic bhon Chomataidh Thaghte, iomairt bhidio air-loidhne le taic mhòran, nam measg an t-ùghdar Peter May, athchuinge air-loidhne, agus mòran, mòran litrichean chun BhBC a’ cur taic ris an iarrtas, nam measg tè bhon Leas-Phrìomh Mhinistear ann an Alba, John Swinney.

Tha BBC ALBA, a tha air a ruith ann an co-bhanntachd eadar am BBC agus MG ALBA, air luchd-amhairc de thimcheall air 700,000 a thàladh agus a’ faighinn taic fharsaing. Tha dèanadas na seanail air dèanamh tòrr nas fheàrr na an dùil a chaidh mu choinneimh na seanail le Urras a’ BhBC.

Tha MG ALBA airson an àireamh de ath-chraolaidhean air BBC ALBA a lùghdachadh gu mòr.

Thuirt Dòmhnall Caimbeul, Àrd-Oifigear MG ALBA: “Tha a’ Chairt agus Aonta Frèam-obrach a’ BhBC a’ cur a-mach dealas sònraichte do chraoladh Gàidhlig agus ag ràdh gum bu chòir am BBC a bhith a’ leantainn le taic airson solarachadh stuthan Gàidhlig, agus a bhith a’ lìbhrigeadh seirbheis thelebhisein tro a chom-pàirteachas le MG ALBA. Tha sinn a’ cur fàilte air an iomradh air craoladh Gàidhlig agus air aithris Rùnaire na Stàite gu bheil Riaghaltas na RA airson ’s gum bi na goireasan a dh’fheumas aig BBC ALBA.

“’S e an ath cheum dhuinn an tuilleadh sheilbheach a ghlèidheadh. Tha sinn soilleir gu feum am BBC àrdachadh brìgheil a dhèanamh nan dealas airson na seanail gus dèanamh cinnteach gun soirbhich le BBC ALBA ann a bhith a’ toirt prògraman ùra agus cruthachail chun luchd-amhairc. Tha sinn a’ coimhead air adhart ri bhith ag obair còmhla ris a’ BhBC gus sin a choileanadh agus tha sinn am beachd gum bi an tuilleadh sheilbheach na bhuannachd do ghnìomhachasan chruthachail na h-Alba, a thuilleadh air a bhith a’ lìbhrigeadh seirbheis dhan luchd-amhairc.”
