The Court of Appeal webcasting pilot of criminal proceedings commenced in June 2017. Not all criminal proceedings in the Court of Appeal are webcast. Recordings will be made available within a few business days after a hearing. The Court will also publish the corresponding notice of appeal (where the DPP is appealing a sentence), applications for leave and, where appropriate, the parties' written cases to provide context to the webcast proceeding.
