We discuss the recent advances made in the search for hidden broad line regions in Seyfert and Narrow Line Radio Galaxies (NLRG) using both spectropolarimetry and infrared spectroscopy/spectropolarimetry. Two important results which support the Grand Unification Theory are presented. In the first of these we report that the famous Seyfert 1 NGC 4151 has a scattered component to its broad line region, and is most likely an object where we view obliquely into its occulting torus. In the second, we show high signal to noise observations of scattered broad lines in the NLRG of 3C 234.
