Potential codes and constraints

  1. 1. Potential codes and constraintsLegal and ethical: Some of the key legal and ethical codes that I will have to consider are listedbelow.• Employment legalization• Health and safety (during filming)• Employees rights• Confidentiality (people who are filmed in the documentary that don’t want their face shown,would be an example)• Offensive material (this could be material that I include that some viewers could findoffensive)• Exploitation• Representational rights (This is looking into what Is said during my documentary to see if thefacts are right, or what people say during the interviews is correct)Codes of practice: The Code of Practice has been drawn up in compliance with clause 61(1) of theAgreement Between Her Majestys Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport and the BritishBroadcasting Corporation (the BBC Agreement) and sets out the principles which are to be appliedwhen the BBC is, for a purpose connected with the provision of Public Television services, agreeingterms for the commissioning of independent productions.1. It is in the interest of the UK television audience that there is a competitive and thrivingindependent production supply market2. The BBC has a role as the nations principal public service broadcaster to help stimulate andsupport the development of the independent production sector.The intention of the Code is to ensure that relations between the BBC and independent producersare conducted on a fair and transparent basis.In line with the provisions of the BBC Agreement it includes details of how the following issues willbe dealt with:a.The timetable for the negotiations of the commissioning agreement;b.The rights that are acquired together with the payment for, duration and exclusivity of thoserights;c.The arrangements for reviewing, monitoring and ensuring compliance with the Code under theauspices of OFCOM;
  2. 2. d.The provisions for resolving any disputes arising in respect of the Code.Copyright: It is important that I do not use any material (footage/ audio) that isn’t mine withoutasking for permission from the owner and being granted permission otherwise I would face massivelegal issues which would most likely end in me being sued for the sue of copyright material.
