The City of Edinburgh Council have just voted to reject the planning application for a 147 bed hotel on the site of the former Royal High School. We got the first interview with the planning CONVENER after the meeting.
Over the next four years the council will have to make £141m of savings. This relates to £126m which has to be removed from spending and £15m as a contingency fund to be held in case of future overspends. We spoke to Councillor Alasdair Rankin about the way the cuts will affect services and staff.

The People’s Songs was a weekly series that was broadcast throughout 2013 on BBC Radio 2.
Across 50 episodes, Stuart Maconie presented the epic story of how modern Britain was fashioned and shaped, as told by the music, stories and memories of this nation’s people.
From “We'll Meet Again” to “Ghost Town”, from “Rehab” to “God Save The Queen”, we told the story of modern Britain via the records that sound-tracked the times - a period of conflict, social change, parties, prosperity, plenty, poverty, peace and war.
On this channel we asked you to contribute to the series, by sending us your Boos, memories, photos, comments, and song suggestions that helped to shape each programme.
