Section 3: Accuracy

Checking Programmes



We must check programmes recorded some time before transmission to make sure they have not been overtaken by events, such as the known death of a contributor, the charging of an offender, or significant life changes.  In some cases an on-air announcement will be required, in others, the alteration or removal of some material.
