Victims, witnesses and defendants will not be filmed while cameras instead focus on lawyers' arguments and judges' summing up, decision and - in criminal cases - sentencing remarks. Proceedings will be filmed from only one courtroom on any given day.
The lifting of the ban means it will be the first time that cameras have been allowed in courts other than the Supreme Court since filming was banned by the Criminal Justice Act 1925.
