Dataset Description (Abstract): The frames identified in the coverage of the 2014 Scottish referendum are here applied to analyse the coverage of the 2016 EU referendum coverage of BBC's Reporting Scotland daily bulletin. This dataset contains the coding of the frames that appeared in all news items about the 2016 EU referendum that were broadcast on BBC Reporting Scotland between 23 May and 23 June 2016. The file records the date, duration, and type of each item in this coverage and whether or not the following frames were present: policy, strategic game, relationship between England and Scotland, divorce, constitutional change, national division, self determination, and national identity. The programmes themselves are available from the broadcaster. The purpose of this analysis is to allow a comparison between the framing of the Scottish referendum in 2014 (in https://datastorre.stir.ac.uk/handle/11667/79) and a small sample of equivalent coverage of the 2016 EU referendum, particularly in relation to the relative prominence of the strategic game and policy frames in the two samples. The 2016 sample contains all coverage of the EU referendum on the specific BBC news bulletin in the final month of the campaign.
