Description:
BBC Radio Scotland is BBC Scotland's national English-language radio network. It broadcasts a wide variety of programming, including news, sport, light entertainment, music, the arts, comedy, drama, history and lifestyle. It replaced the Scottish BBC Radio 4 opt-out service of the same name from 23 November 1978.

BBC Radio Scotland broadcasts 24 hours, delivering archive programming under the name, the zones, through the night.

History

BBC Radio Scotland was founded as a full-time radio network in 1978, although the name had been used since 1974 for the Scottish opt-out version of BBC Radio 4 (previously the Scottish Home Service and then Radio 4 Scotland). The establishment of a separate network was only made possible when Radio 4 became a fully national network and moved from medium wave to long wave.

Opt-out stations were established in Inverness (BBC Radio Highland) on 25 March 1976, followed by Radio Aberdeen in April 1976, BBC Radio Orkney and BBC Radio Shetland in May 1977, Selkirk (BBC Radio Tweed) on 11 April 1983 and Dumfries (BBC Radio Solway) on 16 April 1983. Only the Orkney and Shetland stations still exist; the others had all closed by the early 1990s and are now served by Radio Scotland with four opt-out news bulletins a day. Previously planned opt-outs in Edinburgh, Glasgow and Dundee were never realised.

The most famous and controversial head of Radio Scotland in recent years was James Boyle.
