628.     Broadcasting proceedings of the House of Lords.

The proceedings of the House of Lords are recorded both for radio and for television. Sound broadcasting has taken place since 19781. Televising began experimentally in 19852 and was made permanent in 19863. Normally the proceedings of select committees (when those proceedings are held in public) may also be recorded for television if there is sufficient demand from broadcasters for the footage4. Proceedings of both the whole House and committees have been broadcast on the internet permanently since
