Lord Peter Wimsey:
We're All Data Now with Duncan Campbell
Did you know that the DHSS is setting up a central register of just about everyone in the country at its new computer centre in Newcastle?
... or that Europe's biggest commercial databank in Nottingham contains files on virtually every family and household in Britain? How threatened is the citizen's right to personal privacy? Is the law on data protection strong enough to cope with the fast-moving growth in computerised information?
Duncan Campbell shows just how easy it is for information to leak from these databanks - even from the Police National Computer. And he invites members of the public to have a direct look at the kind of information that is held about them.
