Voice over script

  1. 1. VOICE OVER SCRIPT:It’s 2012 and with over 60 million people living in theUK, the authorities have the tough responsibility ofkeeping everybody safe. With a number of CCTV camerasoperated by local authorities hitting 35,000, we willexplore why CCTV is costing taxpayers over £200 million ayear and whether it is used as a means of protection oran invasion of privacy.We spoke to Martin Guest an injury solicitor at Excaliburin Solihull about surveillance and how it helps in hisline of work.The use of video cameras allows CCTV footage to transmita signal to a specific place.“Positive views of CCTV cameras have argued that thecameras are not intruding in people’s privacy as they arenot watching private, but public space.” (quote)We visited Paul Ashdown, the principal of a local collegein Birmingham to get his opinion on how CCTV is regulatedlegally in his work place.Public transportation saw a decrease of 23% in crime whenCCTV cameras were present.We asked Gill Tracey a sociologist from Birmingham togive us her professional opinion on CCTV.Surveillance cameras are not just something, which can beused outside of the home. Many people have startedincorporating CCTV into their own homes as a form ofprotection against criminals.In 2007 an investigation claimed that the majority ofCCTV cameras in the UK are operated illegally. Argumentssay that CCTV displaces crime rather than reduce it.
