Engender National Identity

I’m in Finland at the moment and noticed on the YLE (Finland’s BBC) TV schedules last night that the News was broadcast regionally in 10 minute slots sequentially covering all 7 or 8 regions.  This seems eminently better than our way of concurrently covering the UK regions. One may be working in London and our parents are in Wales for example, or we may be travelling home from one region to another and the local weather forecast is of interest to us. The formal scheduling also allows you to be selective if you wish.
I can’t really see any reason for not doing it this way in the UK and I’m sure it would help to create and foster a more positive national identity, which must be good all round.
