monitoring the Scottish political media

A SCOTTISH POLITICAL MEDIA LOG

Keen readers will know that we're keeping an eye out for TV appearances by Scottish Labour leader Johann Lamont recently. As part of our quest, we'd already done some digging into which politicians had given interviews or taken part in discussion panels this year, but the thing that struck us with some surprise was that there doesn't currently seem to be anywhere such appearances are logged. (I asked the BBC, but rather surprisingly they don't keep such a record.) And if a job needs doing, it's usually quickest to just get on and do it yourself.

So we're going to have a try. Appended below is a list (incomplete) of the Scottish politicians and political pundits – or UK ones speaking about Scottish issues – who've appeared in the broadcast media since the start of 2012. We'll be keeping the list updated daily, but we can't monitor everything by ourselves (radio is a particular blind spot, for a variety of reasons) so we'd appreciate a little help.

If you're a viewer or listener of an episode of any of the following shows, we'd be most grateful if you could find a moment to tweet us a very short message saying which politicians/pundits were on it discussing Scottish matters. (Don't worry about whether someone else has already sent us it – getting the same information multiple times isn't exactly a hardship for us.) Alternatively you can just add the info as a comment on this post (which can always be easily found from the front page via the "Reference" tab at the top right) and we should spot it right away.

We'll add it to the database, and see if it ends up telling us anything interesting.

Good Morning Scotland (BBC Radio Scotland, daily); This Week (BBC1, Thursdays); Daily Politics (BBC2, weekdays); The Andrew Marr Show (BBC1, Sundays); Call Kaye (BBC Radio Scotland, weekdays); and any other shows available to a nationwide audience, even if only via the internet.

..

(PLEASE NOTE: In the list below, if we've entered the word "(none)" for an edition of a show, there were no politicians or political pundits on that edition. If there's a "?" it means we haven't yet been able to determine who (if anyone) was on that edition. If you can fill in any blanks for us, that'd be a big help too.)
