Eòrpa (Scottish Gaelic for Europe) is long-running current affairs programme broadcast on BBC Two Scotland and BBC Alba. The series has been running since 1993, and has covered political and social issues affecting Europe and Europeans over that time including issues affecting the Western Isles. It is broadcast weekly in Scottish Gaelic with English subtitles. The programme has also been credited with awards, including Scottish BAFTAs. It is funded by the Gaelic Media Service and produced by BBC Gàidhlig. Eòrpa is shown on BBC Alba on Wednesday at 20:30 and on BBC Two Scotland on Thursdays 19:30.[1]


Eòrpa hit the headlines in May 2008, specially mentioned in the Scottish Broadcasting Commission report. Blair Jenkins, Chair of the Scottish Broadcasting Commission said: 'It was intriguing to note that without fail at every one of our public events BBC2 Scotland's Eòrpa programme was raised, unsolicited, and by non-Gaelic speakers, as an example of a positive, well-respected programme'.[2] The programme is an argument for Gaelic broadcasting and the Gaelic Digital Service as the programme attracts well over the amount of Gaelic speakers. Tam Cowan, a Scottish journalist stated whilst taking to Cathy MacDonald on Off the Ball that he was a fan of Eòrpa.
