  1. Thanks for mentioning the women’s game TV scheduling in the pod. If anyone wants to contact the BBC direct about the BBC Scotland channel having nothing on at 5 pm on Saturday (isn’t this sort of thing part of the reason for launching a separate Scotland channel) then they replied to a tweet of mine to say to comment via A couple of ‘do these answer your question’ FAQ pages later did navigate to an actual contact form. Obviously BBC1 or BBC2 would be even better but they are showing the finals day match on BBC Scotland and can’t understand why this game couldn’t be on there too so it would at least be on Freeview and more accessible to people without smart TVs
