BBC journalists on Monday began a 24-hour strike in protest at compulsory redundancies, causing possible disruption to the broadcaster's television and radio output.
Members of the National Union of Journalists (NUJ) walked out at midnight (local time and GMT) at the end of Sunday's programming, over job cuts which are expected to affect BBC Scotland, Five Live, the Asian Network and the World Service.
The strike was called after meetings failed to produce agreement over the redeployment of 30 employees facing compulsory redundancy. Nine of the 30 jobs are at BBC Scotland.
