Decision Summary

  • Case Ref: FS50102474
  • Date: 11 December 2006
  • Public Authority: BBC
  • Summary: The complainant asked the BBC how much its staging of the Children in Need charity appeal programme cost in 2005; how much of the money raised was spent on televising the appeal and how much individual presenters and other personalities including Terry Wogan, Eamon Holmes and Natasha Kaplinsky were paid. The complainant also requested a list of all music acts which were paid for their services on the night. The BBC refused the request on the grounds that it fell outside the scope of the Act. The Commissioner decided that the Act did apply. He also decided that the exemptions under sections 40 and 43 of the Act which were submitted by the BBC did not exempt the information from disclosure.
