Using clips and practical examples this talk from Abbas Media Law looks at the contractual, legal and regulatory issues that can crop up in access docs, including data protection, defamation and top tips for drafting access agreements. The talk will be invaluable for anyone involved in filming with organisations such as the emergency services, hospitals, prisons, bailiffs, RSPCA, schools, corporations and airports.
Issues will be brought to life through a number of thorny questions such as “the police want my rushes can I refuse?”, “what clauses go in an access agreement?”, “how do I obtain CCTV footage from the police?” and “can I feature a contributor in a programme if they withdraw consent?”.
If you have a burning access question this is also your chance to grill the Abbas Media Law legal team who regularly advise on access docs and are some of the most experienced television content lawyers in the country.
This workshop will take place at The Square Club from 3.30-5.30pm on Tuesday 26th February. The ticket price is £30+VAT for Bristol Media, RTS and Square Club members, otherwise £45+VAT.
