  2. For immediate broadcast (not for archive material)
  3. Only after receiving the consent of the Orchestra/Conductor/Soloist(s) and/or Choir
  4. All cameras and/or microphones are to be placed in the same area. That area should be easily accessible and not disturb the orchestra or the audience.
  5. Recording can last no more than 5–10 minutes
  6. For transmissions exceeding that time limit, the Broadcaster will be obliged to pay a suitable fee.
  7. When cameras and/or microphones are not being used, they should be removed from their stands or turned to face the floor (as appropriate).
  8. When filming and/or recording has finished, the cameras should be removed from the hall at a suitable moment (without disturbing the orchestra or the audience).
  9. Should the material be used in future for any other purpose, the Artist (and all other artists concerned) will be paid a fee.

Non-flash photography is permitted in the hall during rehearsals on condition that the photographer and the apparatus work discreetly and quietly. Digital cameras can be used for still photographs (not motion pictures).
