Lord Chief Justice Lord Thomas, said: "My fellow judges and I welcome the start of broadcasting from the Court of Appeal.
"The Court of Appeal has, of course, been open to the public and to journalists for a long time.
"The change in the law which is now coming into force will permit the recording and broadcasting of the proceedings of the Court of Appeal.
"This will help a wider audience to understand and see for themselves how the Court of Appeal goes about its work."
