The Ofcom, BBC Performance Tracker October 2017 – April 2018, makes uncomfortable reading for the BBC. 64% of all UK adults had a favourable overall impression of the BBC. Only 52% felt the same way in Scotland. Remember this overall impression includes the full range of highly impressive nature documentaries, highly popular dramas such as The Bodyguard and the equally popular Strictly Come Dancing. Ofcom did not ask specifically about BBC Scotland News or Reporting Scotland. We can only imagine the result if they had. I guess they wouldn’t risk that.
