    • The producer is responsible for the provision of material for promos which MG ALBA will dress and finish by the addition of the BBC ALBA transition and information tag-line & graphic.


  • 8. What is the timescale for delivery of the single camera highlights package in relation to rugby matches?
    • There is currently a requirement to produce (at least) a single camera highlights package of (at least) ten minutes duration of each Pro 12 rugby match played in Scotland that is not being recorded live by any broadcaster. Such package must be delivered upon demand as soon as possible after the end of the match in question. This is not a regular demand.


  • 9. Will TUPE legislation apply and if so how many staff members would be involved?
    • TUPE legislation may or may not apply. MG ALBA holds relevant information which is available on request to prospective bidders on a strictly confidential basis. Please include potential TUPE costs in a separate budget in any bid.


  • 10. When would the new contract start?
    • The new contract will start 1/7/17.


  • 11. Do you require programme bids to include costings for red button language services on your sports programming?
    • No, there is no requirement to factor costs regarding red button language services into programme bids.


  • 12. Is there a requirement to provide Television Match Official (TMO) facilities on BBC ALBA’s live rugby coverage?
    • We currently offer TMO facilities on BBC ALBA’s live rugby coverage and we envisage this will continue.


  • 13. How often are consecutive OBs required within the same week?
    • There is likely to be a requirement to facilitate and broadcast from sporting events on consequent days particularly when the rugby and football or football and shinty seasons overlap. This could be in the region of 20 weeks per season. Occasionally there may be two different sports fixtures on the same day. This could occur around 5 weeks in a season.


  • 14. What happens in the event of match postponement?
    • If a match was postponed at short notice there would usually be an obligation on the provider to pay the OB provider. An allocation of costs incurred as a result of this would be permitted to the contract amount, and the provider would include these short notice postponed matches in their total number of matches covered. The original fixture or a suitable alternative can still be covered (ie: MG ALBA would normally retain the rights for the rescheduled date).


  • 15. What digital rights are held?
    • Rights tend to be held for broadcast use only and BBC iPlayer, with some digital rights for promotional purposes.

    • An-dràsta tha e riatanach a bhith a’ riochdachadh (co-dhiù) aona phasgan de ‘highlights’ [camara singilte] de (co-dhiù) 10m a dh’fhaid de gach geama rugbaidh Pro 12 ann an Alba nach eil air a chlàradh beò le craoladair sam bith. Feumaidh leithid de phasgan a bhith air a lìbhrigeadh cho luath ’s a ghabhas an dèidh a’ gheama air a bheilear a’ bruidhinn. Chan eil seo a’ tachairt tric.


  • 9. Am bi reachdas TUPE a’ buntainn, agus ma bhios, cia mheud neach-obrach a bhios an lùib seo?

  • 13. Dè cho tric ’s a tha feum air OBs co-amail taobh a-staigh an aona seachdain?

Tha sinn a’ tuairmse gu faodadh seo tachairt mu 20 seachdain ann an sèasan. Dh’fhaodadh gum biodh geamannan ann an dà spòrs fa-leth gabhail àite air an aona latha.
