Dear British Broadcasting Corporation,
BBC Radio Scotland and BBC Radio Ulster have for the last forty years produced regular daily programmes from two centres to cater for their audience.
In Wales Radio Cymru also uses a two centre operation from Bangor and Cardiff.
1) Can you please reveal how many hours a week of regular daily Radio Wales programmes,broadcast between 6.00am and 6.00pm ,are produced and transmitted from North Wales.
2) If the answer is zero can you please explain if it is because of technical difficulties or just a management decision to keep all the nations mainstream public service radio emanating from Cardiff.
3) Wrexham is the largest town in North Wales and a three hour drive from Cardiff.
Is there any reason regular daily programming can not be produced from the area to remove the current South Wales bias and provide output that reflects North Wales?
4) How many hours a weeks of regular daily Radio Wales programmes, broadcast between 6.00am and 6.00pm, are produced and transmitted from Cardiff? eg Good Morning Wales,Good Evening Wales and all regular daily strands.
