Response Handling Ltd v British Broadcasting Corporation - undercover reporter in call centre - Scottish Court of Session 3.4.07
Response Handling runs call centres. An undercover BBC reporter, Ms Sandeep Gill, went to work for them. Her employment contract contained a confidentiality clause. She used a concealed camera and made various notes which the BBC intended to use in a "Frontline Scotland" programme on 4th April 2007 investigating bank account and credit card fraud. Response applied for an "interim interdict" to stop the BBC using the material.
