Gibraltar killings: British media ethics

Journal of Mass Media Ethics 7 (1):31 – 40 (1992)

Governmental response to the 1988 Thames Television documentary Death on the Rock, on the killing of three IRA operatives in Gibraltar, provides a case study for the examination of the British government's alleged attempts at media control. The Stalker affair further suggests this policy. Media restraints in Britain are numerous, including articles in the Emergency Provisions Act, the Prevention of Terrorism Act, the Offenses Against the State Act, and the new Broadcasting Act. It is argued that individual citizens are being deprived of basic human rights on political grounds and the reporting of such abuses is deliberately impeded by the government
