: Kenyon Confronts: The Gravy Train

Rule-breaking, malpractice and sloth on Britain's busiest transport system are costing us millions. Secret documents and covert film footage of maintenance gangs working for London Underground are among the evidence gathered by reporter Paul Kenyon and his team.

Kenyon Confronts 7.30pm BBC1
Anyone who has ever travelled on the London Underground, and certainly anyone who is a regular Tube commuter, will be both appalled and infuriated by this extraordinary investigation. A member of investigative reporter Paul Kenyon's team spent weeks working under cover as a member (of subcontracted crew of workers who supposedly toil underground during the night on repairs and maintenance. The men have a four- to five-hour window in which to get crucial work done, after the trains have stopped running and the power has been turned off. Kenyon's hidden-camera footage reveals a group of men who, variously, mess around with potentially deadly equipment, fall asleep on platform benches and spend unconscionable amounts or time doing (or rather, not doing) the smallest and simplest of jobs, for which they're being paid the full rate. One crew member even picks up wallets thrown from Tube trains by pickpockets looking for cash, and uses the credit cards he finds to fund trips abroad. And, after all this, one of them has the nerve to shout to his workmates, laughing: "Now you know why it's so expensive for tickets." Yes, indeed, because, Kenyon tells us, 3.5 per cent of the cost of a London Tube ticket goes towards such "maintenance".

Kenyon, obviously not a man who is easily socially embarrassed, very bravely takes a megaphone and a giant screen to London's streets to show commuters exactly what is being done with their money. And he even gives London Underground managers a nasty shock when he turns up at their headquarters with his evidence.

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.
