On 30th November the States will be debating their policy on who can or can't film official States proceedings. At the moment, no-one is allowed to film States sittings. BBC Jersey have the exclusive right to broadcast live, and this is now also streamed on the Channel TV website. The JEP, the island's only newspaper also gets use of the other 'box' (the Radio gets the one on the right).
As the States proceed with what will be no doubt a long, tedious and generally ill-informed (prejudiced) debate, you may get bored. If so you may want to check out this video instead.
The bit at the end when he asks the Senior Officer a very straightforward question, but gets no straight answer made me think of States Question Time with certain Ministers! Enjoy
I have the good fortune of meeting Mark tomorrow, at the BBC. I will make inquiries as to whether he can come to Jersey to bring some of his unique brand of political commentary/comedy to us.
