Illustration of lots of television sets and a white outline of a man watching themCompleting Diamond monitoring will usually be the responsibility of production management, but this may vary from company to company. Diamond is integrated with Silvermouse, which many production teams may already be using for ‘Programme as Completed’ paperwork or collecting diversity information. Diamond¬†completely replaces any current processes used to capture diversity data in Silvermouse, which varied from broadcaster to broadcaster, with a single standardised approach.


If you are the person responsible for completing Diamond monitoring, our Guidance Notes will provide you with comprehensive information and support to help you run the process within your organisation, and to keep your colleagues and talent informed on how the process works and what they will need to do.

A copy of the Guidance Notes can be found here.
