Second in a special three-part Timewatch documentary on the "red scare" in America. No Place to Hide. Mention McCarthyism and most people think of the Hollywood blacklist. In contrast tonight's film bears witness to the real victims of the anti-communist witch-hunt: the tens of thousands of ordinary people whose lives were destroyed by what amounted to an American
Inquisition. There's Paul, an electrician who couldn't work for 20 years because of one joke. And Frank who was followed for 38 years by up to eight FBI agents a day - even though they admitted themselves that he was not a security risk.
Now that the Cold War is over, they are among those who dare to tell their full stories for the first time.

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.
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.
