The Disposables
In Colombia, years of political and drug-related murders have created one of the most violent societies in the world.
Now a sinister new form of killing, called social cleansing, has begun. Beggars, thieves, homosexuals, prostitutes and street children - Colombia's "disposable people" -are preyed upon by death squads.
The murderers are usually hired by shopkeepers and businessmen who want to clean up the streets of what they consider unproductive human beings. In one instance, tramps were lured to a university campus and then slaughtered to provide body parts for medical students.
Emily Buchanan tracks down the victims and their killers.

"My probation officer said she's glad I'm doing this instead of robbing and getting put away again," says Tony. He's a windscreen washer manning the lights just south of the Thames at Vauxhall Cross in London.
This programme observes the humour and aggression, the privations and rewards, of a year in the life of the "squeegies", who lie in wait of motorists at the traffic lights and clean their windscreens in the hope of a tip. Leah, who is 28, is "the Queen Bee of the crosses", but even she is not hardened to the rigours of the life. "If you're being nice and they're still rude it hurts you and makes it more difficult to have the will power to go on and ask other people," she says.
The film is also a frank picture of the street society that the squeegies live in, of which washing screens is just a part.

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.

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.
