    Does anyone know the law regarding video recording?

    Does anyone know the law regarding video recording, I unfortunately got caught up in some recording of some TV show last night, and I tried to tell the camera man that they are not allowed to record me without my permission? is this right or am I going to be on TV looking a twonk?
    Thanks in advance

    why do you not want to be on tv it might be fun to see your self on tv, what was they filming?

    Was it at a tv studio or out in a public place?

    If it was at a studio I imagine by buying a tickert or entering the studio you accept you may be filmed for the show, if it was in public when you are doing your own thing I think they are supposed to get permission if they use a face shot.

    It was a public place, it was for some program about the police like Night Cops! or something
    I don't want to appear on any program :x

    you are correct, they need your consent to appear on tv or to be filmed.



    Incorrect, they do not need a persons permission to be filmed, or appear on T.V.

    I am of the opinion that you do not have to give permission especially in a public place. Think of a the bogus tradesmen type programmes they do. I'm sure that they don't give permission, and what about CCTV?

    whats the big deal anyway? only a few million people will see you embarass yourself.

    how come they blank out some peoples faces but not others? Maybe you'll be on but with one of those pixelated faces?

    probably because they look like they may be under 18... but that might be wrong

    For all different reasons, but sometimes because of an ongoing court case.

    I would say age or it may be to do with ongoing cases. If someone is still going through the court process they wouldn't be able show them.

    You are missing the point buddy,,,

    Does anyone know the law regarding video recording?



    Well, if you dont tell her that the video camera is hidden in the bedroom then theres no harm done. :w00t:

    On a more serious note, they dont need your permission to film you out in public but I think they do need permission to show your face on the programme, best thing to do is to explicitly object to make sure they dont.

    they only need your consent i believe if you speak on it
    i've been in a couple of tv shows whereas ive had to give permission only because i spoke on it
    in fact i'm on a bbc show next month

    skusey;4584042

    wrong, they have requested not to be shown.



    Don't be so ridiculous, if this was the case, all people would do is say "I don't want to be shown", and then shows like "Rogue trader" "Police, camera action" et al would cease to exist.

    skusey;4584042

    All people blanked out are involved in court cases.:thinking:I think not.



    Can you show me where I said " All people blanked out are involved in court cases"?

    skusey;4584042

    If you are under 18, they need you permission.



    Also complete tosh. Programme makers do it out of courtesy a lot of the time, but they do not need permission.

    If you can link me to these laws, I will give a £10 to a charity of your choice for each correct one you substantiate.
