BBC (Decision Notice) FS50523299: ICO 23 Jan 2014

The complainant has requested photographs taken in Zambia on 24 October 1964. The BBC explained the information was covered by the derogation and excluded from FOIA. The Commissioner’s decision is that this information was held by the BBC for the purposes of ‘journalism, art or literature’ and did not fall inside FOIA. He therefore upholds the BBC’s position and requires no remedial steps to be taken in this case.
