Title: Supreme Court: Video Recordings of Court Proceedings

The records in this series are digital video recordings of the proceedings of the Supreme Court. All open proceedings at the Supreme Court are recorded and broadcast online. Footage of current and recent court cases are available through the Supreme Court website; the records in this series are the archived proceedings that have been transferred to The National Archives.

This content is made available under the Open Supreme Court Licence.

Date: 2009-2010

Each of these recordings contains proceedings recorded within one morning or afternoon session of the UK Supreme Court. Events within the proceedings may be one of the following: the court's official opening ceremony, swearing-in ceremony, cost hearing, appeal hearing or judgment. The recording will contain a single event in the first three cases whereas judgments can cover up to five individual sessions within one recording.

Judicial swearing-in ceremonies and costs hearings have no case ID identifier and no case summary. Appeal hearings are the only sessions to have data about the hearing start and end date and as such may be across multiple recordings. Hearings are indicated under the 'session' information with either 'am' or 'pm'. The session information and date only appear once for each recording. Where there are multiple sessions on a recording the details of these are displayed within the catalogue description following the order in which they appear within the recording. All the recordings in the first transfer were for the period October to December 2009. The second tranche consists of the proceedings for the 2010 Easter term.

References for born digital records are automatically generated and display a 'Z' after a forward slash, which distinguish them from traditional references allocated to paper and digitised records.
