Out of Sight, Out of Mind Britain's sewers- once the best system in the world -are now collapsing daily. Holes big enough to swallow a double-decker bus are appearing throughout the country as sewers cave in through old age and lack of maintenance. The collapses pose a real threat to both safety and public health, as well as causing major disruption in the worst hit cities. It has been estimated that it could cost £4,000-million to replace the ailing system, yet the water authorities do not have the cash to carry out a fraction of the necessary work. Worse still, most authorities are only now realising the scale of the problem.
Roger Cook Investigates an issue that some experts claim has been out of sight and therefore out of mind for too long.

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.
