The film features interviews with Yes Supporters on their experiences of bias and views on BBC coverage of the independence debate. They also give their views on the BBC post-Yes and there is a clear and unanimous desire for change. I am always impressed with the articulacy and depth of the views given.

This is the follow up protest that saw numbers grow from a few hundred to over 2000. There was a great festival feel to the Protest with speakers and song. The protest was more of an occupation with people filling the entire facing square and entrance at Pacific Quay. As usual the Protest was made up of a huge variety of people and there were plenty of families with children. Credit to Police Scotland who did an outstanding job, waiting by calmly in the background and chatting with Protesters.

I had a person keeping a rough head count. While it is difficult to be accurate at an open event like this, there was a core of around 1,600, an additional estimated 5-600 came and went over the two hour period. The BBC reported the event and stated there was 'several hundred' protesters then denied any bias coverage of the referendum debate.
