Allowing television cameras into the courts at sentencing has been broadly welcomed by both media organisations and the legal professional.
Yet there are concerns.
Media organisations will naturally cherry pick the juicy bits leaving viewers without the full and often complex picture leading to further criticism.
But they have been doing that for decades anyway - a lot of court proceedings are achingly dull.
Sitting alongside this announcement, however, is a really interesting idea - the creation of 'press judges'.
These will be judges who will take the time to explain what a decision means and its implications. A super PR for the judiciary, so to speak.
It will not be a role to take on lightly - many of our media organisations do not look favourable towards the judiciary.
The Daily Mail in 2016 called them 'Enemies of the People', and more recently The Daily Telegraph ran the headline 'The judges versus the people'.
Yet it must be a good move to help demystify and explain complex court proceedings, highlighting their own impartiality.
But they will need to chosen carefully and given the support and backing they need - both from government and clever media advisers.
Ministers should create “press judges” who would have an open relationship with the media and explain rulings to them, a former appeal court judge has suggested. Sir Alan Moses, who retired last month as chairman of the Independent Press Standards Organisation, spoke exclusively to The Brief, the legal affairs email from The Times. He said: “Judges should be much more open with the press and talk to them much more. The press is more spinned against than spinning. If a judge was willing to spend 15 minutes on the phone explaining what they foresaw the case was going to be about, it would be wonderful and would help anybody writing an article about it.”
