9.2.1

We must ensure that the physical and emotional welfare and the dignity of children and young people is protected during the making and broadcast of our content, irrespective of any consent given by them or by a parent, guardian or other person acting in loco parentis.  Their interests and safety must take priority over any editorial requirement. 

9.2.2

We must ensure that children and young people are not caused unnecessary anxiety or distress by their involvement in our output.  Their involvement must be clearly editorially justified, consents should be obtained as appropriate to the circumstances of the child/young person and the nature of the contribution and output, and support should be given to them where necessary.
