"Every Step You Take" is an excellent, but critical new documentary about video surveillance in Britain (it has just premiered at a film festival in Austria, coming to Britain / US soon).
It also has a section that deals with the presence of CCTV in toilets and other 'impossible' places. The trailer alone is worth seeing check it out:

Its a secondary school in the middle of 3 big council estates in north Bristol. Some of our kids have got real problems. They may give the impression of not wanting to be at school during the day but, when 3:30 comes around, they don't want to go home, because of what's waiting for them there.Originally Posted by kerrymoralee9280
I worked at The Queen's School, which was the first school to place cameras in the toilets. You'll be amazed at some of the footage, we had a kid look direct at the camera, smile, wave, right before he took the sink apart.
Funny hearing about how he denied it was him when they played it back to his parents. Specially when the head was outside at the time and walked in on him.
Ah fun times.
I believe if you google the queen's school you'll see some where in the top 20, a link to the CBBC article about it.
That be the one!!
If anyone cares, the schools been closed and re-opened as the thomas clarkson community college. The heads left, the new temp head has left, the new head has left and it's the old deputy head who's now the temp head.
Lots of heads leaving there body (school)
I read it more like the lights on the ceiling...i hope thats what was meant lol! (uv lighting)
We had CCTV in the loos. All came out 2 years or so back.
We've had them smashed, torched, flooded, used as a knocking shop (by a few students), smoking shelter and communal "base". Now we've got someone on guard there full time, it's no issue.
Getting the cameras out was GRIM...metal enclosures, toiletrolled into obscurity in the roof..soggy, smelly, all in all yuk. The girls was by far the worst, surprisingly.
We have quite a few kids here who don't really want to go home either..or who want to come in during holidays to escape.
We put it in the end of year 11 presentation for his year...we only hold a grudge until they leave.. Got a HUGE laugh..
Unfortuanly no-one stepped forward.... I wonder y ? Lol
Amazes me how most people i've worked with are tea\coffee addics
If you all had a choice, lose you right( or left if your left handed) arm or never drink tea\coffee ever again.
Lucky for me I'm one of those few freeks that doesn't like tea\coffee!!
I bet there would be all manor of uproar if said cameras were in the girls/womens.
i started a new job about a month and half ago and recently two people have been suspended and another sacked due to something to do with fraud or theft. ive heard that the company are thinking about putting covert cctv around the store and in the staff toilets. im wondering wether this is allowed as the staff toilets are one of males and one for females but they are just one room with the toilet and sink right next to each other. surley they are not allowed to do this?
