Since its establishment in 1922 the BBC has continually asserted itself as one of the great British institutions at home and abroad. David Pat Walker offers an in-depth analysis of the history of BBC Scotland from its creation in 1923 through to its 50th anniversary in the seventies. Examining how the firm developed over the course of the 20th century, the author portrays how the broadcaster developed its own Scottish identity despite governance from London and how it thrived within the context of the history it reported and created.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Pat Walker charts the continuing challenges and development in television and radio across drama, light entertainment, music, news, current affairs, sport and ground-breaking programmes such as the weekly series Scope. Alongside this there was a battle between the Director General Hugh Carelton Greene and BBC Scotland's controller Andrew Stewart over tradition and trendiness, only one of many confrontations. - THE SCOTSMAN
