ITC PUBLISH REVISION OF PROGRAMME CODE

THE Independent Television Commission (ITC) have published a revision to Section 2.11 of their Programme Code, dealing with the television reporting of sexual, and other, offences involving children.
Following consultation with licensees and interested parties earlier this year, the revised wording for the last paragraph of section 2:11 is:
“When covering any pre-trial investigation into an alleged criminal offence in the UK, licensees should pay particular regard to the potentially vulnerable position of any person under 18 involved as a witness or victim, before broadcasting their name, address, identity of school or other educational establishment, place of work, or any still or moving picture of this person.
“Particular justification is also required for the broadcasting of such material related to the identity of any person under 18 who is involved in the offence as a defendant or potential defendant.”
This revision comes into immediate effect. (CD)
