STV has been granted a legal first to film the sentencing of a murderer at the High Court in Edinburgh.
David Gilroy was found guilty of the murder of Suzanne Pilley after a trial last month.
Next week, when Gilroy is sentenced for the killing, STV cameras will be present and will focus on Lord Bracadale passing sentence.
On Tuesday, the Judiciary of Scotland confirmed Lord Hamilton, the Lord President and Lord Justice General, had approved the application made by STV to film the sentencing diet.
Filming will commence when Gilroy’s lawyer has concluded his plea in mitigation next Wednesday and the footage will be made available to news outlets immediately afterwards via satellite feed.
An STV spokesperson said: "This is the first time in the UK that TV news cameras have been allowed to film a sentencing in a criminal court, and we’re pleased that STV has been instrumental in making that happen.
"This development will allow viewers a rare insight into the closing stages of what has been a very controversial murder case."
The judiciary confirmed this is the first time that permission has been granted to film during a sentencing diet in the High Court.
Scottish Liberal Democrat leader Willie Rennie said: "By televising this, people like Gilroy who have been found guilty of such a shocking crime will face a day of reckoning. The public will be able to see justice being done."
Gilroy, 49, of Edinburgh, was previously found guilty of murdering missing book-keeper Ms Piley and burying her body in woodland. He was also found guilty by a majority of attempting to defeat the ends of justice.
