    Chvrches singer Lauren Mayberry will be the first face and voice of BBC Scotland’s new TV channel – after her band were asked to record a brand new version of one of their songs.

    The Glasgow-based pop and electronica group joined forces with the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra to record a special orchestral version of their hit Miracle for a sequence lasting nearly three minutes which will herald a new era in Scottish broadcasting this weekend.

    I ended up a dinner with the controller of this new channel. He believes this will be the last normal tv station created by the BBC as the move to digital continues.

    To BBC's credit, I feel like they were pretty ahead of the curve when it came to providing an online portal (iPlayer) for watching their content.
