Bectu Launches Campaign To Standardize Working Conditions In Unscripted TV Following Open Letter
EXCLUSIVE: What started as a short open letter about working conditions in the UK unscripted sector has turned into a full-on campaign with backing from more than 1,000 people and the nation’s largest broadcasting union. Off the back of the open letter signed by more than 1,000 TV industry workers in less than a week, Bectu has today launched a campaign to establish an agreed set of terms and better regulation of working practices for UK freelancers working across entertainment, docs and factual. The union’s desire is to bring UK unscripted TV working conditions more in line with scripted, which recently saw a new deal brokered between Bectu and indie trade body Pact – although this took almost a year of negotiations.

BBC Director General Tim Davie On Digital Switchover: “We’re Not Putting A Date On It Or Anything Stupid Like That”
The BBC is “not proactively putting a date on a digital switchover or anything stupid like that,” Director General Tim Davie has said, but rather sparking a “broader conversation across the UK for when we do move across.” Davie said today that linear TV channels will not be snatched away from older viewers, stating that he was “being provocative” in the recent landmark speech when he discussed an internet-only TV future. “We should have an aggressive plan but that is not a plan to remove things used by lots of people too soon,” he added, speaking to the UK government’s Public Accounts Committee. “We’ve got a fantastic record of not leaving people behind and that is not part of the proposal.” But while older viewers are more likely to watch linear, Davie said research shows when people over the age 65 move across to digital, “they don’t come back.” In December’s RTS-organized speech, which generated multiple headlines about the future of the BBC’s linear … [Read more...] about BBC Director General Tim Davie On Digital Switchover: “We’re Not Putting A Date On It Or Anything Stupid Like That”
Oscar Pistorius Denied Parole, Will Remain In Prison
Getty Oscar Pistorius will remain behind bars for the foreseeable future ... the former Olympic sprinter and convicted killer was denied parole in South Africa on Friday. Pistorius had hoped to get early release this week ... after he served more than half of the 13-year, 5-month sentence that he was given for shooting and killing his girlfriend, 29-year-old Reeva Steenkamp , in 2013. But, at the proceedings in Pretoria, officials said he had actually not served the minimum requirement to get parole. Officials said there was some sort of miscalculation of when his formal sentencing actually began, and the hearing would need to be pushed. Getty Pistorius now will have to wait until August 2024 to reapply for the early release. Steenkamp's parents attended the hearing to argue Pistorius should remain in prison. According to Sky News , Steenkamp's mom, June , told reporters outside of the venue that she believed the 36-year-old was … [Read more...] about Oscar Pistorius Denied Parole, Will Remain In Prison
