The Broadcasting of Judicial Proceedings
This chapter is devoted to the reporting of trials to those persons who were not present in the courtroom in the specific context of radio and television coverage of the proceedings. It is already commonplace in some legal systems for court hearings, under controlled conditions, to be open to radio and television coverage. In some countries, the applicable conditions are such that material is produced in sufficient abundance to maintain in existence a regular programme, or even a whole network, devoted to the broadcast of trial proceedings. The example of such jurisdictions has prompted the call for the admission to the English courtroom of audio-visual technology with a view to the transmission of the proceedings. Such proposals for change as have been advanced have been in favour of permitting the televising of court proceedings, and it is this aspect of the subject that forms the principal focus of this chapter.
