BBC ends live Assembly coverage

Posted on This is My Truth on 17th July

Ok, it's a niche market but the decision to axe live Assembly coverage on S4C2 is a retrograde step.

As well as inevitably leading to redundancies in the BBC's Political Unit in Cardiff Bay, the move compounds the trend of reducing the amount of coverage of the changing policy agenda in Wales at a time when politicians are contemplating holding a referendum.

It may not be mourned in the pubs of Wales, but it is part of a piece - and it is not a pretty piece.
