PTS Loses 84,000 News Archive Files 公視新聞片庫遭廠商刪除 遺失8.4萬筆資料

Public Television Service's digital assets in the news library were accidentally deleted by its data storage company. Culture Minister Lee Yung-te said a special task force has been formed to investigate this incident, while PTS said it will seek compensation and hold relevant people accountable.


Public Television Service accumulated numerous news clips over the years, only to see them disappear in an instant. PTS outsourced the storage of its digital news library, and the data storage company deleted its files. On March 16, the Ministry of Culture reported on this incident to the legislature. PTS said there were 84,000 files that can't be recovered, and legislators across party lines could not believe that something like this could happen. The ministry said it has formed an investigatory task force with the Executive Yuan's Department of Cyber Security and the National Communications Commission, and the results of the investigation will be announced within a month.

Lee Yung-te, Culture Minister: “It's inconceivable that something like this happened. There must be some reason why it occurred. It's probably not as simple as a mistake committed by a single person. There must be others involved, whether they are responsible for setting up systems or something else. ”

Wan Mei-lingm, Legislator (KMT): “Every time a major incident occurs, we always find a scapegoat and there is always an absurd reason and we beat around the bush until the next incident. That's why I actually quite condone your attitude today.”

The ministry said punishment will be administered.

Lee Yung-te, Culture Minister: “PTS has already internally drawn up the list of names to be punished and to take responsibility. ”

With regards to the unrecoverable files, PTS said it will first purchase footage from Taiwan Broadcasting System's CTS and the money will come out of the news department's service fees. PTS' board will set up a task force to determine whether it will seek compensation from the company.

Hsu Chiu-hua, Acting GM, PTS: “The board intends to set up a task force and ask professional consultants and lawyers to determine the appropriate compensation amount.”
Huang Kuo-shu, Legislator (Ind.): “Okay, thank you. Can you report back on this issue within a month's time?”

On March 11, two members of a filming crew died after falling into a pond in Miaoli. The Ministry of Labor said the employer did not arrange for crew members to wear life jackets and there were no protective railings or safety ropes on site, which are all violations of the law. It promised to conduct inspections in the future. The Ministry of Culture said it will draft guidelines on how cultural and artistic undertakings should comply with labor laws and how to draft contracts for cultural and art workers to uphold rights and benefits and strengthen work safety awareness.

 

 

經年累月採訪拍攝,累積的大量新聞畫面竟一夕間消失。公視新聞片庫資料遭外包廠商刪除,引發社會關注,16日上午文化部赴立法院業務報告,公視證實尚有8萬4000多筆找不回來,朝野立委同表不可思議。文化部表示,已會同行政院資安處、NCC組成專案小組深入調查,1個月後有結果。

文化部長李永得表示:「這個事情,一個不太可思議的事情,這裡面一定有什麼原因在那裡,應該不是很單純的只是說一個人,操作人員的疏失,它一定還有很多其他,不管是系統的設置等問題。」

國民黨立委萬美玲則表示:「每一次如果出現一個大事情,我們就找一個替死鬼出來,一個很荒謬的理由出來就搪塞掉,下次還會再有,所以今天您這種態度其實我很欣賞。」

而文化部也證實後續會有懲處。

文化部長李永得表示:「有,公視內部已經擬定好,這個懲處的名單,負責任的名單。」

針對找不回來的畫面,公視表示會先向公廣集團的華視購買畫面,暫時先以新聞部業務費支付,至於後續如何向廠商求償,公視董監事會要組成鑑價小組。

公視基金會代理總經理徐秋華表示:「目前董事會也打算成立一個鑑價小組,請專業的顧問一起會同律師,來做求償金額的認定。」

無黨籍立委黃國書則追問:「你這個部分可不可以,1個月以內提出來好不好?」

而11日發生有劇組在苗栗南庄神仙谷拍攝時,有攝影師、收音師不幸落潭死亡的重大職災事故,也在委員會受到關切。列席的勞動部指出,業者未讓工作人員穿著救生衣,現場也沒有設置護欄、佩戴安全帶,明顯違法,承諾將來會針對類似劇組,進行專案勞檢。文化部指出,已研擬「文化藝術事業應遵守勞動法規指引」、「文化藝術工作者承攬暨委任契約之指導原則」等,加強勞動權益及職安意識。
