    BBC Radio Humberside

    We've had more details about plans to make a film from the story of a group of women from Hull who led a trawler safety campaign in the 1960s.

    Known as the Headscarf Revolutionaries the women successfully lobbied the government for better safety after 58 men died when three trawlers sank in 1968.

    Bridlington writer and director Mark Herman, who worked on Little Voice and Brassed Off, is involved with making the programme.

    He says it will most likely be a two-part TV film for the BBC.

  16. CCTV: Should it be mandatory in care homes?

    BBC Radio Humberside

    Would you feel happy entrusting your relative to a care home?

    Apparently 43% of people in Hull wouldn't according to research by Neil Hudgell Solicitors in the city. 

    Today a campaign calling for the government to make CCTV mandatory in care homes has started.

    Yorkshire woman Lisa Smith set up a petition because of concerns about the care she says her dad received in a home.

    However the GMB union in Hull doesn't think CCTV is the way forward.

    Quote Message: Should you be filmed in the street, in a pub, in a bank, somewhere like that you have the full protection of the law but that film in being monitored and watched by someone who is licensed to do this. In private residential homes I'd be worried about just how well this facility is going to be maintained and used for what purposes." from Mick Coppin GMB in Hull
