Inside Out is the brand name for a number of regional television programmes in England broadcast on BBC One. Each series, made by a BBC region, focuses on stories from the local area. Commissioned by BBC One controller Lorraine Heggessey, the programme began on 9 September 2002 and replaced a number of different titles previously used on BBC Two.[1]


Inside Out England shows selected stories from the regional programmes and is shown across England which is hosted by Matthew Wright.

a A different region is selected each week for broadcast on BBC One HD.


The East Midlands edition of show caused controversy in one programme when Ray Gosling admitted to smothering a former lover who had AIDS (this later proved to be false). The programme was filmed in December 2009 and only shown in February 2010. A debate if the BBC should have told the police before the programme aired followed. The BBC was also accused of promoting assisted suicide.[2]

In January 2013, the writer and presenter Chris Geiger investigated a self-styled spiritual healer who claimed to be able to treat cancer using a special diet. Chris Geiger, who claims to be cancer survivor himself,[3] used a hidden camera and posed as a client; again this programme provoked widespread debate.[4][5][6][7]
