Concerns have been raised about the number of repeats being aired on Edinburgh’s big screen.

The controversial Festival Square television is showing 71 locally-produced programmes over Christmas and New Year, but they include several daily repeats of Your Festive Pictures of Edinburgh, Haunted Hogmanay and Edinburgh Napier University Showcase.

Tory councillor Gordon Buchan said: “In the best spirit of Christmas tradition, it all seems to be repeated.

“I’m just wondering where the Bond film is, because it always seems to be repeated at this time of year as well.”

Steve Cardownie, the city’s festivals and events champion, said: “If anyone has any suggestions about how to enhance the offer we will entertain that.”
