Secret Society _suppressed BBC Series_ Duncan Campbell 1987
==================================================

This is Duncan Campbell's shocking BBC video documentary series Secret Society (1987)
which shows the never broadcasted episodes on secret groups,
committees and societies that operate silently within British government.

The Secret Society series caused a political furore in 1987. Alasdair Milne was sacked as director-general of the BBC,
prompting accusations that the governors were acting under pressure from the government.
The production team behind the series was threatened with prosecution under the Official Secrets Act.
Mr Campbell's front door was kicked down and his home searched.
In 1987, Strathclyde Police raided the corporation's Scottish headquarters in Glasgow
and seized the tapes from the offices of BBC Scotland where the series had been made.
Mr Campbell's home was also raided,
The tapes were later returned and the series broadcast on the BBC exept for episode one.
The BBC decided that the episode (one) about secret cabinet committees was too sensitive to show before the 1987 general election.
The Thatcher government leaned on the BBC to prevent its damaging allegations being made public.


- The series consists of the following 6 programmes:
========================================

1. The Secret Constitution: Secret Cabinet Committees;
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
We're taught that Britain is a parliamentary democracy. But who really rules? Answer: small, secret Cabinet committees.

2. In Time Of Crisis: Government Emergency Powers;
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Since 1982, governments in every other NATO country have been preparing for the eventuality of war.
In Britain, these preparations are kept secret. So what will happen when the balloon goes up?

3. A Gap In Our Defences;
-----------------------------------------
Bungling defence manufacturers and incompetent military planners have botched every new radar system that
Britain has installed since World War Two.
Why? And can we stop it happening again?

4. We're All Data Now: Secret Data Banks;
----------------------------------------------------------------
The Data Protection Act is supposed to protect us from abuse, but it's already out of date and full of loopholes.
So what kind of abuses should we worry about?

5. The Association of Chief Police Officers (ACPO);
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
ACPO Making up their own law and policy
About the Association of Chief Police Officers and how Government policy and actions
are determined in the fields of law and order.

6. Communications_Zircon;
-----------------------------------------
About GCHQ with particular reference to a secret 500 million satellite.
Reference to Zircon spy satellites which the public accounts committee were not told about.


His support for this series was one of the key reasons BBC Director General, Alasdair Milne
(who was replaced by Michael Checkland, an accountant) was sacked.
This Journalistic Coup d'Etat was conducted by:
Lord Victor Rothschild, Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher and Marmaduke Hussey in 1986.
The BBC's independence has been under sustained assault ever since.

A must see for everyone !!


---------------------------------------------------
- This is episode one of the series
---------------------------------------------------

1. The Secret Constitution: Secret Cabinet Committees

The first episode about secret cabinet committees features author Peter Hennessy, Clive Ponting and MP Clement Freud amongst others.
In this freedom of information tour de force Campbell exposes the secret decision to buy U.S. Trident nuclear submarines
as well as laying bare the cabinet level dirty tricks campaign against CND and its general secretary Bruce Kent.
Margaret Thatcher, James Callaghan, the British Atlantic Committee, The ultra-right Coalition for Peace Through Security
and the cabinet secretary come in for sharp criticism for keeping key decisions secret from MP's.

This episode was suppressed from high above since it was simply too controversial
as it openly exposed various secret groups operating invisibly inside British government.
They made damn sure no one would ever discover them but they were very wrong.
Find out who they are and what are they doing without your knowledge.

Channel 4 and Mr Campbell later attempted to buy the "banned" episode (one) from the BBC but were rebuffed.
Eventually, the original scripts were used to produce a new version and it was broadcast in 1991 on Channel 4
as part of a season of banned films.
However, the original has never been broadcast.


* I don't know if this is the original or the one broadcast by channel 4.

** The quality is pretty bad, but nevertheless well enough to examine
