BBC Radio 4 takes Privacy Commission debate to Church House

Church House Conference Centre in Westminster, London, has had the BBC in for the last two weeks recording of a series of panel interviews focused on privacy issues.
Radio 4’s PM and iPM shows used the centre to record and broadcast high-profile interviews for a series called The Privacy Commission. The programme discussed the recent rows about injunctions and raised questions in relation to the existing laws, use of social media and the role of parliament and judges in making the law.

Church House GM, Robin Parker, said: “It was really interesting to have the BBC use the venue for such a controversial subject. The panel interviewed individuals such as Hugh Grant, Max Mosley and Zac Goldsmith. Ultimately, I believe it was our location, so close to Parliament and the country’s political elite, combined with our setting that made us the perfect choice.”

Other recent meetings business hosted by the venue has included the British Chamber of Commerce’s annual conference, attended by Chancellor George Osborne, the Director General of the BBC and other members of parliament. Church House was also used by international media for the coverage of the Royal Wedding as its terrace offered a panoramic view of the City of Westminster.
