Decision Summary

  • Case Ref: FS50231775
  • Date: 29 October 2009
  • Public Authority: BBC
  • Summary: The complainant requested details of voting figures from the BBC programme ‘Strictly Come Dancing’. The BBC stated that the request fell outside the scope of the Act because it relates to information held for the purposes of journalism, art or literature. The Commissioner’s decision is that the BBC correctly determined that the information is held to a significant extent for these purposes and therefore the BBC is not obliged to comply with Parts I to V of the Act.
