Welcome to CCTV in the News
Here you should find issues which Newspapers and TV have covered and where appropriate links to the responses by others including of course The CCTV User Group reaction.
Starting 2010 we have a very controversial report by 'Big Brother Watch' full of inaccuracies and the usual pejorative statements. Just click on the links below to see the reports and responses.
''Big Brother is Watching'
The first response was from Tom Reeve the editor of our magazine CCTV Image in his blog on the magazine website
This was followed by an excellant response from Pauline Norstrom of the BSIA who makes some interesting comments about the inherent balance in the original report
