I think you might have forgotten to attach the video, Harry.
I used to work for a news station so I might be able to help answer
your questions, but I would need to see the video to properly answer.

I might be able to be more helpful if I knew what you were
trying to accomplish. This particular story was made in 1991,
so the technology involved is quite outdated.
If you're mostly interested in the ethics and general legality
of hidden camera news stories, I can only speculate based on what
I've heard while working for a new station.
I was merely a camera operator, so I'm not sure how helpful I can be.

The camera operator seems to have the camera hidden in something around head level. Given that the subject is about race, the only difference that may be significant would be the race of the person wearing the camera. That is if the subject and the camera operator are of the same race and are perceived to be with the subject by the shop staff. However, that shouldn't affect what they seem to be trying to show in the programme through the use of the hidden camera, apart from the question of how many shops did they visit to obtain this material and so ensure they have a large enough sample base?
