A guide to your rights at work 2: Equality Under the Law? Since the mid-70s it's been illegal for employers to discriminate m recruitment, promotion, training or terms and conditions, on grounds of a person's sex or race. But there's still major concern that women and ethnic minorities are not getting a fair deal at work. John Buckley and Cheryl Armitage talk to lawyers, authorities and the workers themselves to find out how these laws have been operating. And Paul Heiney tries to untangle the new law on Equal Pay.

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.
