On televising court

Lesson ONe – ensure you get the judges names correct.  After all you’d look a right Charlie if you pictured the senior judge in Scotland and named him as the second most senior as the Beeb have done at the moment.  Particularly when Lord Hamilton’s name appears in the big document you link to from the webpage where you identify him as Lord Gill.

Lesson One leads directly to Lesson Two – while judges claim that wearing wigs in criminal cases protects their anonymity, you do not need to add credence to this view by implying that when wearing wigs all judges look alike and can be identified with on general catch-all name.


and by 11.26 it is corrected.
