Notes: The data comes from the BBC's programme database, Nitro. The data include programmes shown on BBC1, BBC2, BBC3 and BBC4 in 2013 and 2014. The following are excluded: films, animations, repeats, programmes with release dates before 2013, programmes with no release date, and programmes with no credits. Key off-screen roles include writers, directors, editors, producers, series editors, executive producers, and series producers. If an individual worked in multiple roles, their most recent role was used. The database is not comprehensive and a small number of programmes are missing credits. The positions of the nodes are determined by an algorithm that pulls together nodes which are connected and pushes apart nodes which are not connected.
