    DiveAbility on the telly!

    We've got a BBC news crew filming at our pool session tomorrow for an item about diving with disabilities on the 6:30 news*. It's BBC South so just local news but good publicity just the same.


    *whether that's the 6:30 news tomorrow or just an item they'll fit in sometime in the future I don't know.

    Just interested, not critical yes or no, but do you get consent from your disabled participants for filming?
    Evolution is great at solving problems. It's the methods that concern me.

    A fair question. Everyone's been told they can ask not to be filmed but if they say nothing then they'll assumed to consent. For anyone underage there will be a written consent process.

    What was the legal purpose (Article 6 of the GDPR), The film company, as the data controller can’t use a none response as consent.

    That sounds great, always good to get diving some good publicity and keep the sport alive with new people who might not have considered it until they saw it on the TV.

    A friend of mine has a spinal injury and was introduced to diving with Deptherapy, it's really helped him.

    Hope it goes well Stig.

    I’d argue that news-worthy story = legitimate interest therefore consent is not required...

    News reporting gets a a pretty comprehensive exemption from GDPR, for filming in public places the lack of objection is considered consent.
    A BBC news team will have this covered.

    I'm a little surprised a post about publicizing the inclusivity and accessibility of the diving community has got such a frosty reception from TDF.

    Some people are just so process driven they lose sight of why the process exists. Doing things right becomes more important that doing the right thing. Some won't even act to change the process if they think it is wrong or assume it applies to cases outside of their own knowledge.

    Devil's advocate but by asking for consent would you have to follow the GDPR? Would it be better not to formally ask and then use the newsworthy story reason as justification for not asking. Once the question has been asked then GDPR takes precedence. That is my understanding after some very basic reading on the subject.
