: The Right to Know....

An Investigation into Secrecy Tuesday's Documentary
Workers have taken jobs in a London factory without first being told they could be working with a killer substance. Over 100 died in 12 years-the youngest was 32. In law they had no right to know potential risks.
Yorkshire's rivers are the worst in the country but the identity of the polluters has been kept secret. ' The law protects the polluter not the public' claims the Yorkshire River Authority. Some local authorities say undue secrecy at the Department of the Environment hinders their efforts to improve the environment.
As a recent Royal Commission demands a more open policy this film investigates specific cases of secrecy and asks should there be a ' right to know '?

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
