Decision Summary

  • Case Ref: FS50184496
  • Date: 8 December 2009
  • Public Authority: BBC
  • Summary: The complainant requested information on listening figures from the BBC relating to two different programmes broadcast on Radio 3 for several time periods. The BBC refused to provide the requested information on the basis that it was outside the scope of the Act, or in the alternative it was exempt by virtue of section 43(2). The Commissioner has decided that the requested information was held to a significant extent for the purposes of journalism, art or literature. Therefore the BBC was not obliged to comply with Parts I to V of the Act in relation to these requests.
