Editorial Policy Meeting in London - 14th Feb
Created on 13 Feb 2013
This month’s London Editorial Policy Meeting will take place on Thursday 14th February from 11.30am to 12.30pm in the Conference Room (5th Floor), White City.
The agenda will feature the following:
Censorship or Sensitivity?
Recent news reports have criticised the BBC for both censoring Jimmy Savile from the archive, over his removal from Desert Island Discs, and for being insufficiently sensitive to his victims by not erasing a Savile look-a-like from an episode of The Tweenies.
So does an allegation or conviction for a sexual offence against a BBC presenter necessarily mean they must be expunged from our archive and should we omit racist language from historic programmes before repeating them?
Using a number of recent examples, the meeting will explore these and other issues.
Advertising & Sponsorship Guidelines
Advertising and sponsorship provide important sources of revenue for the BBC’s Commercial Services. However if executed badly they could damage the BBC’s global reputation and cause future commercial relationships to be put in jeopardy. Anthony Worrall, Senior Adviser, Editorial Standards, BBC Worldwide will explain why the BBC has Advertising and Sponsorship Guidelines for BBC Commercial Services and highlight the revised Guidelines which will come into force on 1st March.
The meeting is open to all within the BBC to attend and take part. You do not need to book. You are welcome to send a deputy if you are unable to come or bring anyone else from your teams who may benefit from the discussion.
