Computer glitches hit BBC Scotland

Mark Watts

BBC Scotland was hit by computer problems this week that disrupted yesterday's (Tuesday) transmission of the midday radio current affairs programme.

A BBC Scotland spokesman said that the failure to broadcast the first half of the hour-long"Scotland Live" was down to problems with computer servers at the new Scottish headquarters in Pacific Quay in Glasgow. The gap was filled with a pre-recorded interview programme.

Staff at the Scottish base also had problems with their computers and telephones for part of the day. No television programmes, however, were affected.

BBC Scotland was hit by glitches at Pacific Quay soon after its official opening just over a year ago.

The spokesman said,"We have been having problems with out telephones today, but no programmes have gone off air."
