Conflict takes over when communications break down in this series of five programmes about situations that depend on good communications - work, family, school, politics, even diplomacy. Everything is real, nothing was staged or repeated for the cameras.
A modern electronics factory in Dorset. A nice place to work, with intelligent, sympathetic people in management and the unions. But in two days the system virtually breaks down, with the factory on the brink of a strike when a seemingly well-meant management productivity scheme is seen as a threat to men's jobs. An accidental leak, the sudden arrival of management consultants forces management and unions to take up their positions. The programme follows both sides, their strategy, their thinking, their goals.

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.
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.
