You can smell the refuse dumps of Cairo from miles around - piles of rags, bones, tins and paper await collection, while the rotting foodstuff is gorged by thousands of pigs, who rootle around the dumps. In the middle of all this live the Zabaleen, the refuse collectors of Cairo. Their homes are built from the very rubbish they collect. Mike Hopwood reports on the dehumanising effect of life on the rubbish dumps and asks what can be done.

Mr Justice Venables:
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.
