Cameras in Court?

Is this a good idea?

In America, many trials are televised, with some becoming media sensations.
So, what use is it to have cameras in court? Keir Starmer QC (pictured), the new Director of Public Prosecutions, has said that he is not opposed to the idea.

For an example of what it might look like, have a look here at three Scottish judges delivering a verdict on the Nat Fraser, who lost his appeal against a life sentence for murdering his wife.

Media madness or justice being seen to be done? You decide!
