This is the second case from the OFCOM bulletin and starts at page 78




This case is (in my opinion) more serious than case 1 in that NO consent was obtained. Also it has disclosed that the Body Worn Cameras transmitted live audio/video to the film crew. The BWC were supplied by the production company so all copyright material belonged to Channel 5 rather than DCBL.

If you are asked to deal with any matter via private message, PLEASE report it.

Everything I say is opinion only. If you are unsure on any comment made, you should see a qualified solicitor

Read that one after the first case. Channel 5 are on very shaky ground and are still falling back on a tired and discredited Public Interest defence. I am of an opinion that by going in with cameras rolling theymight well breach GDPR if there is NO Signed Written Consent obtained from the victim, as they are filming in a private residence with no prior warning. There is also a serious data Protection issue with the BWC worn by the DCBL Muppets as Ch 5 own them and therefore the copyright of the footage.


This was definitely worse as there was NO Consent obtained.

We could do with some help from you.
