Jackson doctor trial shown on TV?

Michael Jackson's doctor Conrad Murray is going on trial

The trial of Michael Jackson's doctor may be broadcast on TV.

A US judge said he will approve TV coverage of the involuntary manslaughter trial of Dr Conrad Murray if the camera is unobtrusive.

The Los Angeles Superior Court judge also said he was moving up jury selection to March 24 because the original date of March 28 was too close to the absolute statutory limit for a speedy trial.

In an effort to clear pre-trial motions, the judge set another hearing for February 15. By then, he hopes TV outlets will have submitted a coverage plan for final approval.

Dr Murray has pleaded not guilty in the death of the pop superstar from an overdose of the powerful anaesthetic propofol and other sedatives.

Wanderlust may be too powerful to resist. Planning a long holiday will be a pleasant diversion from work. You don't have to have fancy accommodation. You're willing to rough it for an adventure, but you do want to get good value for your money. Doing some research into the best places to stay and eat will pay off handsomely. Take along a friend who is free spirited and eager to explore unfamiliar vistas. The two of you will make great travelling companions.More
