Dear British Broadcasting Corporation,
Following my enquiry ref. CAS-5488821 which relates to a recent BBC News broadcast (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0CjOCYzR...) I have been informed by the BBC Complaints Team that "it looks as though a small child brought into the office was rolling about on the floor for a moment" during the broadcast. The child appears to be unaccompanied.
While I consider it perfectly acceptable for parents to take children "to work", particularly during a weekend, I am mindful of the security and Health & Safety procedures that should be in place at a major broadcaster's news studio that young visitors are, presumably, asked to follow.
I would be grateful for details of the specific induction procedure for news studio visitors under the age of 18, including any rules that govern their behaviour when unaccompanied.
Mr A Willmore
