London QC Dinah Rose entered the annals last Thursday as the first barrister in England to be televised in action in court. A snatch of her address at the first sitting of the new Supreme Court, which happened to be about the costs of the JFS admissions row, was broadcast by Sky News.

In summer she successfully put the case against JFS at the Court of Appeal, but now Lord Pannick will hope to reverse his defeat there when the Supreme Court hears JFS’s appeal in two weeks. The hearing could be screened — a must for our legal friends, if not exactly Rumpole of the Bailey.
