"I would like to request the following information regarding your TV shows" - expect them to refuse disclosure as any information held for the purposes of "journalism, art or literature" is exempt from disclosure. It's their favourite excuse to refuse people information.

Is this really what the FOI Schedule 1 exception for the BBC was intended to do? BBC is hiding behind the exception and failing to be brought to account.
