Roundtable

Trial by Documentary: Are filmmakers playing judge and jury?

They’re slickly produced stories that entertain millions of people across the world. But, at their heart documentaries deal with real people and real evidence. And now, they’re bringing down some of the most famous entertainers in the world… alive or dead. We were joined at the Roundtable by Oliver Fetiveau, who is a commercial lawyer who focuses on intellectual property, libel and image rights. Joe Smith is filmmaker at The Economist and has formerly worked on Dispatches. Jez Lewis is a Director and Producer who co-founded Bungalow Town production company, and Caroline Frost is TV Chair of the Broadcasting Press Guild. Roundtable is a discussion programme with an edge. Broadcast out of London and presented by David Foster, it's about bringing people to the table, listening to every opinion, and analysing every point of view. From fierce debate to reflective thinking, Roundtable discussions offer a different perspective on the issues that matter to you. Watch it every weekday at 15:30 GMT on TRT World. #Movies #Filmmakers #Documentary
