Transparency at its Finest: Lifting the Ban on TV Cameras in Court
Thu 29th Mar 2012 Personal injury
I was interested to read in the Daily Mail that a ban on filming major criminal trials in Court is expected to shortly be lifted. The decision to allow TV cameras to film the sentencing of serious criminals will be announced in the Queens speech in May.
have only been allowed in the Supreme Court and only relating to the Judge's
summary remarks. It is expected that cameras will be allowed in other Courts
although initially it will only apply to Court of Appeal proceedings and Crown
Court prosecutions. The ban of filming victims, witnesses, offenders and jurors
inside the Court will remain with the Court keen to ensure that the identities
of these parties remain protected.
The plans, for the time being, are only for filming to take place when the Judge passes sentence. Minsters are keen to control the filming and not to allow cases become a TV spectacular, like the recent trial of Michael Jackson's physician, Dr Conrad Murray. I personally did not see any of this footage, however, an unnamed colleague was glued to her screen every night and I must say became slightly obsessed by it all!
So, will it be Police Camera Action! or take after take after take?
