Editorial Policy Meeting in London - Thurs 25th April - Council Chamber, BH

Created on 19 Apr 2013

This month’s Editorial Policy Meeting will take place on Thursday 25th April from 11.30pm to 12.30pm in the Council Chamber, Broadcasting House.

The agenda will feature the following:


This week’s broadcast of Panorama: North Korea Undercover has raised questions about deception: how do you balance the information necessary for obtaining consent from those assisting our cover story while protecting them from our deception of the authorities, which could pose risks.

When is the use of deception justified, how can we keep it to a minimum and in proportion with the subject matter and what steps should we take when fabricating a CV for an undercover investigation?

Using a number of examples from current affairs and factual entertainment, the meeting will consider these and other issues. 


Revised Investigations Guidance & Guidance on Referral

The meeting will also bring you updates on what to do when material which could be of interest to the Police, or other authorities, is revealed during an investigation which is not broadcast, along with details of a new Guidance Note clarifying the existing practice of referrals to senior managers and specialists, such as Editorial Policy, Editorial Legal, Child Protection and Fair Trading.
