News

We apologise for the temporary loss of streams between 09:08 and 09:28 GMT, and between around 11:15 and 14:50 GMT due to technical problems. Normal service has now been resumed.



The Elections for Scotland's Parliament are under way. Unusually, because of Covid restrictions, the count of votes is being spread over two days, so a final result won't be available until either this evening or some time on Sunday. Mostly for the benefit of listeners outside of Scotland, we will be broadcasting a brief results programme today at 18:55 GMT (7.55pm UK time) and if the final result is not available at that time, we will if necessary broadcast an additional results programme at 17:55 GMT on Sunday (6.55pm UK time). Election 2021 will be presented by Tony Currie.



Our move from Glasgow to the Island of Lismore is now complete, and programmes are back to normal. However, there may be occasional teething problems with our streams for the next few weeks while the system settles down. Please note that we are now permanently based on Lismore, so that's the only mailing address to use in future.



Please note that our schedule times both online and in "Radio News" are always given in GMT = Greenwich Mean Time, for UK time add one hour, for European time add two hours.



Page updated at 14:56 GMT on Saturday 8th May 2021. Programme schedule updated.

There are still many fans of the music that was featured as background to the BBC test card transmissions in the 60s. Programmes often didn't begin until 5pm and the entire daytime was given over to the pattern and music. Our record label, Lounge Music has put together an album of some of the original music from these days and it's available now on Amazon and other download sites. The Test Card in Black and White (NSDL 60017) can be bought as a download here.
