Former BBC boss Blair Jenkins: 'New TV channel has a challenging budget'

Former BBC boss Blair Jenkins believes a new £30m channel for BBC Scotland has a both a "modest and challenging" budget.

He was speaking after the corporation's director general Tony Hall announced plans for the television channel which will launch in autumn 2018.

Mr Jenkins said: "It is a modest and challenging budget for the channel, for the remit it has, for a channel that has a high degree of expectation, a high degree of scrutiny."
