London – The extent required to verify quality of photos and videos was clearly outlined in a detailed report issued by the BBC organization. A bit dated in terms of when the report first appeared, it still provides plenty of timely guidance.

Most impressive is the depth offered by four accuracy checklists. For instance, BBC editors are prepared to take nine steps to verify illustrations if the source is unavailable. While advocated by several USA publishing authorities, checklist usage apparently has not been embraced by many B2B editors.
