LONDON (AP) — Television cameras will be allowed in one of Britain's highest courts for the first time from Thursday, partially lifting a ban on filming in court that has been in place for almost a century.
Cameras will be able to broadcast from the Court of Appeal after years of campaigning from British broadcasters, including the BBC and Sky News.
Although the public and reporters can attend court hearings, filming in British courts, with the exception of the Supreme Court, had been banned since 1925.
Chief Justice John Thomas, the most senior judge in England and Wales, said the move will help a wider audience understand the work of the Court of Appeal.
Lawyers' arguments and judges' comments and sentencing remarks may be filmed, but victims, witnesses and defendants may not.
