BBC Trust Draft Guidelines for the Coverage of the Referendum on Independence

The RSE has called for the BBC Trust to consider the need to establish a guidance and review panel for Scotland to oversee output on the referendum, in its response to the Trust’s Service Review on News and Current Affairs.

It also suggests that the BBC Trust should engage in scenario planning around the two possible outcomes of the referendum, as it is unlikely that, whatever the outcome, reversion to the status quo ante of news and current affairs services delivery will be appropriate.
