Alex Watts : Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
Alex Watts : For now please let me know whether you have been contacted by the production company please ?
Yes, I was phoned today
Alex Watts : Ok and you refused I assume?
Yes, I said that I was very angry about this and felt that this was a very bad idea. I can't remember the exact words that I used. I took her name and the name of the company plus a contact number.
Alex Watts : ok. Well it's a mixture of news.
Alex Watts : As you have this dispute you would have to declare it when you sell in any event.
Alex Watts : However in terms of the tv programme, you can't stop them from themselves being filmed and being on it.
Alex Watts : But they can't involve you or broadcast you in it without consent
Alex Watts : So it's a double edged sword.
Alex Watts : On the one hand you can't stop the neighbour being in it but on the other you can stop yourself from being in it
Alex Watts : I am sorry if this is not necessarily the answer you want and certainly not one the one I want to give you, but I have a duty to be honest
Alex Watts : Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
The problem is that the house is very close to ours so I am afraid that it will be shown on the tv. Can't I stop them using it?
Alex Watts : Sadly not.
Alex Watts : Anyone can just go onto google street map and do the same thing
So, basically, there's nothing I can do about it.
Alex Watts : Only stop you from being on it.
Alex Watts : But you can also use this as an opportunity to put your side.
Alex Watts : Can I clarify anything for you about this today please ?
If we do that then they are likely to edit it and we won't like the result.
Alex Watts : It is
Alex Watts : it is possible
Alex Watts : But the same could be said for the neighbour
Alex Watts : Is there anything else I can help with today?
Can't I take out an injunction against the neighbour or the producer of the programme?
Alex Watts : It's not illegal
Alex Watts : You can't stop a neighbour being involved in a tv programme
Alex Watts : That part is nothing to do with you.
Alex Watts : Legally you can't prevent someone from being on a show
Well, I'll have to try talking to the neighbours and see if they can see my point of view.
Alex Watts : Indeed.
Alex Watts : Is there anything else I can assist you with today?
