Welcome to Newswatch. We look at stories which viewers the received
it too much attention and others which the US felt were not covered
enough. Still making headlines is the trial of Vincent Tabak who
admits to the manslaughter of Joanna Yeates but denies the murder.
Our correspondent reports. Ten months after he killed Jo Yeates
Vincent Tabak came to of they his story in his own words. Her
boyfriend great it joined her parents and her brother in a packed
courtroom. On last week's programme we heard
objections to the BBC showing pictures of the inside of her flat.
This week it a viewer finds some of the images to be voyeuristic and
gratuitous. Another thing city is undignified that Joanna's
bewilderment and pain should become a temporary soap opera. Another
asks if someone could explain how this day more bitter update is more
relevant in this case than in other ongoing murder cases. Has the BBC's
reporting this reports at and intrusive, as some US thing? A
senior journalists joined spin out to discuss this. What you like
about the BBC trial coverage? They are any reporting what was said in
open court. I wanted to make a few points. Why is this particular case
receiving so much attention? The other has to do with the content
and the use of what I thought were vulgar head lies. As they have to
see how these headlines constitute intelligent reporting. I want to
know why the BBC was reporting to this kind of sensational reporting.
One might normally find such things in a tabloid newspaper. James, you
are stooping to gratuitous tabloid reporting,. We realise this is a
difficult case. The first of your points: Why has this case got
coverage? It is one we have been asking ourselves. It is the nature
of the story. The fact that she was leading an ordinary life and this
happened to her. The point about the style of the reporting. I do
not think we stick to lower standards than we would have done
elsewhere. Set any venues is by a very experienced correspondent
based in Bristol. He has tried to balance the enormity of the public
interest with sensitivity about the case. There were more grisly
details which the court have heard. That is in open court. Publicly
stated. Are you an editor out of both the 6pm and 10pm news. You are.
He make any distinction between what you report earlier when
children may be watching than later? We think about it. The 6pm
news has a peculiar status because it is before a children's programme
but it is an adult news programme. There is some accommodation made
for the fact that it is unusual in dealing with adult content before
the watershed. That means fine judgement about what we think is
acceptable to a teatime audience. What he make of what you have
heard? Iten he James's. Clearly. It reminds me of a comment made by
Meredith Kercher's family that her daughter is lost in the hype
surrounding the case. The circumstances of Joanna Yeates
murder may be forgotten in the media hype around the trial.
Sydney-Hobart it is a point worth making. -- I certainly hope not. We
will bear that in mind as the trial goes on. Thank you for joining us
from Bristol. Reports into the tragic death of Dan Weldon appeared
everywhere at the start of the week. The racing-car driver was killed at
a race in Las Vegas on Sunday. This package was shown on the 1pm, 6pm
and 10pm news the next day. Dan Weldon was racing for a five
million-dollar prize. Starting at the back he had to levitate every
other in the car racer. Be airport went on to show his car
sipping, hitting a wall and bursting into flames. Before it was
aired the West were warned it contained distressing images.
However a you're got in touch to say that we would not televised the
blow that killed a boxer. If someone were shot, we would not
show them being shot. So why show the crash which killed and Welton?
Many people who take part in Dan -- motor racing find such footage
distressing. From complaints have Floodwaters are inundating Thailand.
Several thousand have died and tens of thousands are forced from their
homes. AQA wrote to West Indies believe that the disaster was not
receiving more coverage. Or protesters have been dead in the
Wall Street for more than a month and in the last week have assembled
in countries across the globe. It will started on 17th September with
a small group gathering close to New York's financial heart and Wall
Street. Its world it to several thousand people with dozens of
arrests being made. The campaign known as Occupy Wall Street has
attracted people from thousands of miles away, many holding signs
spelling out their goals. Demonstrators on Sunday set up camp
outside St Paul's Cathedral in London after an earlier attempt to
occupy a square outside the London Stock Exchange was halted by police.
Many complained that the BBC was so to report the protest. Even when
coverage of the global occupations picked up over the weekend it was
too little, too late. A US said it was a story that was clearly
important from the start and yet were several weeks to find space.
Another concern was that by covering violence like the August
riots and not covering peaceful protests, Condit BBC be
unintentionally fuelling protesters to go to extremes to be noticed.
need to encourage peaceful protest. Smaller demonstrations have taken
place in other cities across the Cape including Bristol, Birmingham
club, Glasgow and Edinburgh. Wallace is BBC News' answer? We
were given a statement. The Occupy Wall Street demonstrations have
been covered during the past month. Last Sunday when protests took
place in London, New York and elsewhere, the story featured in
all the news bulletins on BBC One and in Radio 4's evening bulletin.
Occupied Bristol has been covered by BBC Radio Bristol and a BBC One
show. Last week we kicked off an occasional slot in which in the
wake of the BBC cost-cutting proposals he was can point out what
they see as money being wasted. One viewer said the work unnecessary
travel costs involved in sending weather reporters to different
parts of the country. Or, delight to see the weather presenters out
and about? Does it enhance the report when the presenter is in a
scene implication? Finally, why you insist on broadcasting predictions?
