BBC Panorama


Carter-Ruck advised an LSE student who participated in a visit to North Korea, which found itself at the centre of a much-publicised row between the LSE and the BBC. The trip had been covertly organised by the BBC as a means of allowing Panorama journalists surreptitiously to enter and film the country. However, the BBC had not informed the students of the true purpose of the trip, or the danger which they faced if the Panorama journalists (who were all posing as students) were caught filming by the North Korean authorities. The BBC’s conduct attracted widespread criticism including from Ben Bradshaw MP, the LSE and various other academic bodies including the Royal Society and the British Academy.
