Editorial Integrity & Independence

Outside providers of material

Where other broadcasters or other organisations provide is with footage, stills or other material we may be required to credit them with a logo, over or next to the material. This might be the case when sports footage or stills are supplied by another broadcaster. There may also be a single use of an outside logo in the credits for a co-production, joint editorial initiative or independent production. Event logos may also be acceptable on occasion.All use of logos or icons in credits must have the express advance approval of the relevant Interactive Executive Editor.

The supplier of a technical service may also require a credit and this may in some cases be in the form of a logo. However, for publicly funded online pages, technical services must not be provided free on the express understanding that there will be a credit.

See detailed guidance on Credits.
