Huge ‘holograms’ offer medics more memorable classes, BBC News Online: Finding by the Editorial Complaints Unit

Complaint

A reader with a professional involvement in holography complained that the teaching aids described in the article were not holograms but examples of the Pepper’s Ghost illusion, and that the article was seriously misleading.

 

Outcome

In response to the complainant’s points at an earlier stage of the BBC’s complaints procedure, a passage making clear that the items were examples of the Pepper’s Ghost illusion was added to the article.  In the view of the ECU, and notwithstanding the complainant’s belief that any reference to holograms in this context was seriously misleading, the addition sufficed to resolve the issue of complaint.
