    Birmingham schools - recording tv programmes

    Hi

    I wonder if anyone who works in a Birmingham school may have the answer to this. I know of the Educational Recording Agency Licence which allows schools to record tv programmes and show them in class in a educational scenario, but does anyone know if Birmingham City Council have this licence for all schools or does each school have to purchase it?

    Also if a school does not have this licence, I presume you cannot record tv programmes and show them in class and certainly not make copies of those recordings. Would I be correct in this thinking?

    @Ayaz:

    As far as I know most LAs have purchased a PVL license to cover all their schools this will allow them to broadcast TV whether it be recorded or Live plus original DVDs for educational purposes only, not for using on rainy day breaks to entertain the kids.

    That is what I have been told by my LA.
    I would check though as your LA may do things differently.

    I'd be interested in what others views are on this. Feature DVDs clearly state for home use only and prohibit vieing in educational establishments. Now I know that, over the next few days, our teachers will be showing dozens of videos that the kids have brought in. They also know that, strictly speaking, this is illegal but what should we ICT guys be doing about it? Personally, I will explain the situation to our HT and leave it to him.

    This seems to becomg a rather HOT topic, very popular at the Learning Gatway conference yesterday.

    I think i'll be having a chat with Tony see if i can grab some information and add it to the Wiki for people to refer to.

    PVSL license for viewing DVDs - you're supposed to send a list of films viewed back on a quarterly basis - but if anyone can suggest a workable way of getting teachers to declare when they've sat watching a film, rather than teaching, I'd be interested to hear it...

    Copyright4Learning Home - Copyright4Learning is a site looking to collate guidance around all forms of copyright.

    I will do some more digging around and try and get further firm answers. Some responses I have had previously about ERA+ I am now questioning as others have had different answers.

    Usually the LA purchases ERA or ERA+ and it covers all their schools.
    I phoned ERA to ask them if our LA/school were covered
    Tel: 020 7837 3222 Email: era@era.org.uk

    The FAQ explains what it covers
