USFS switches, says IPTV filming is OK

After Gov. Butch Otter sent a letter to the U.S. Forest Service objecting to the agency’s denial of permission for Idaho Public Television to film a group of students in the Frank Church River of No Return Wilderness - on grounds that the public TV station’s filming is “commercial” - the Forest Service has now changed course. Here’s its announcement:

Ogden, Utah May 21, 2010 – After careful review, the US Forest Service has moved to allow filming by an Idaho Public Television crew in the Frank Church River of No Return Wilderness. Nationally, we want to improve access, and increase public understanding of the importance of National Forests, Grasslands and Wilderness areas.  One of the ways we can do this is through the media. An assessment of current policy will be completed soon that will address the need for media related activities on National Forest System land.
