Reasons why broadcasting shouldn’t be devolved – number 94

Alex Salmond wants to devolve broadcasting to the control of the Scottish Parliament.  Those of us that care about television therefore look at home-grown broadcasting to evaluate the merits of this argument.

BBC Scotland has a new “comedy”.  It is called “Legit” and premiered on Friday evening.  It was repeated tonight in order to massage viewing figures.  Based around two market traders and their “adventures”, featuring Clare Grogan in a minor role, it is laugh free, joke free, had a slight air of homophobia, sought to get laughs from mental illness, and joins the long line of home grown shows that Scots viewers will trust never make it to a wider audience.  

IN terms of home-grown quality “Legit” is worse than Jackie Bird welcoming the New Year, and on a par with the lunchtime news bulletin jokey feature from Scotland Today.

I watch the telly and read when not doing law stuff and plugging my decade and a half old unwatched Edinburgh fringe show.

  1. But, to be fair, it has Clare Grogan in it. Turn the sound down. 😉

    Is it as bad as Still Game? (Which I noticed Scotland’s HMV’s have something of a glut going on at the moment)
