Hyslop To Host Special Lecture On Broadcasting In An Independent Scotland

Fiona Hyslop MSP, Cabinet Secretary for Culture in the Scottish Government, will address the Royal Television Society (RTS) Scotland Centre in a special lecture entitled Broadcasting in an Independent Scotland on Wednesday 21 May at The City of Glasgow College Television Studio. The lecture will be chaired by John MacKay of STV.

What are the implications of independence for broadcasting in Scotland? What would happen to BBC Scotland, STV, Channel 4 and the people who work for them in the event of a 'Yes' vote? What would the proposed Scottish Broadcasting Service deliver? And what price would we pay for EastEnders, X Factor and David Attenborough?
The politician who would be responsible for implementing the new broadcasting regime should Scotland vote for independence will answer these questions and discuss other issues facing the industry at the event.
Fiona Hyslop was elected a Lothians MSP in 1999 and was a member of the Parliament's Education Committee. In 2007 she was appointed Cabinet Secretary for Education and Lifelong Learning, and was responsible for re-establishing the principle of free higher education in Scotland by abolishing the graduate endowment fee. Appointed Minister for Culture and External Affairs in December 2009, she established the cultural development body, Creative Scotland, in July 2010, as part of the Public Services Reform Act. She also secured funding towards the Dundee V&A project, the new Bannockburn visitor centre, and the creation of the Robert Burns Birthplace Museum in Ayrshire. Following the Scottish Parliament Elections in May 2011, she was elected MSP for Linlithgow and was appointed Cabinet Secretary for Culture and External Affairs.
