Action on human rights in the TV industry

The TV Industry Human Rights (TVIHR) Forum was established in 2017 after members of BAFTA’s Albert Consortium recognised a need for broader industry collaboration and action to understand and address human rights issues in the TV industry.

The Forum uses a human rights lens to look at the making of TV programmes, considering who may potentially be impacted and what any impacts could be.
