Dear British Broadcasting Corporation,
I'm guessing that this question won't be answered because you will decide it is exempted from the Act. I understand that you are not obliged to answer, but it would mean a lot if you did, Auntie.
How does the BBC define ‘journalism, art or literature' during FOI case assessments and in which guidelines can these definitions be found. To be clear - I am not asking about any work that has actually been produced or a producer of such a work, but the definitions that would apply that would lead to the categorisation of a piece of work as being one or the other. For example, how would the BBC have decided whether:
1. A tweet by Adam Fleming is considered journalism (i.e. is very tweet by him journalism?)?
2. A urinal placed in the middle of a gallery is considered art?
3. The mad, newly discovered scribbles of TS Eliot would be considered literature?
