Television in an independent Scotland (part 3)

Continuing our series (see episode one and two) of dips into past commentaries on the state of Scottish broadcasting we time travel back to 1978, close to the eve of the devolution referendum, and this excerpt from ‘Headlines: The Media in Scotland‘ :

If anyone claims, as the more complacent time-servers in the media have a habit of doing, that ‘there just isn’t the talent in Scotland’ they should be confronted with the success of Scotland’s independent publishers.  Ten years ago there was a handful of stalwarts in the field; today there are a score of firms, some doing quite sizeable business throughout the world.  It is totally reasonable to assume that these (sic) sorts of initiative and skill could equally bring new life into the broadcast media.

Indeed.
