post that mentions
A BBC team have spent five months investigating the Scottish Office - one of the least-known big spenders of British Government; the equivalent of six Whitehall Ministries north of the Border.
The report, filmed on locations throughout Scotland, and in London, New York, Chicago and Brussels, explains the unique scope of administrative autonomy already devolved to Scotland, and foreshadows the massive changes in store if, as planned, most of this machine is put under the political control of the new elected Scottish Assembly that's now being hotly debated in Westminster.
