Donalda says: “It’s a real honour to be invited to give this year’s Angus Macleod memorial lecture. In what feels like rapidly shifting times, the environment in which BBC Scotland exists has fundamentally altered on all fronts - social, political, and technological. That presents a media marketplace with a mix of challenges and opportunities, and with plans for a new BBC Scotland TV channel to launch next autumn, a new 9 o’clock news programme and increased investment in Scotland, it will be a genuine privilege to be in Stornoway to share more of our vision for the coming months.”
