BBC snubs Dorset with launch of Gaelic channel for just 60,000 people
Fri 05 Sep 2008

We believe it's outrageous that the BBC should spend £21m on a Gaelic channel - costing £365 per native speaker - on such a tiny minority, while refusing to spend anything on Dorset.   As you know, this county, via DorBAG, has been pressing for three years to have local news on radio and television - available to all residents and visitors to the county.   But the BBC has chosen to spend large sums of money for some 60,000 Gaelic speakers while, by comparison,  Dorset has some 800,000 residents (which increases substantially in the holiday season) and we get nothing.   How can they possibly justify this action?   A real snub for Dorset!


If you feel this is totally unjust and unacceptable, why not write to:
