In 1999, the British Parliament granted Scotland a certain degree of greater autonomy through the process of devolution. A year earlier in 1998, the Parliament passed the Scotland Act 1998, which created both the Scottish Parliament and Scottish Executive. The BBC decided to create this website to serve as a repository of original reporting and commentary on the past ten years, and visitors to the site will find a weblog, feature stories, and an area dedicated to "Landmark Legislation". On the right-hand side of the page, the "Audio/Video" area features clips with legislators and other leaders offering their opinions and viewpoints on Scottish devolution. Additionally, the site features a retrospective on how the BBC covered the process and a feature on the Scottish Parliament building.
