Man Alive


We have produced a Style Guide to help editors follow a standard format when editing a listing. If you are unsure how best to edit this programme please take a moment to read it.
Tonight ...
... hands over to a report from the other side of the Atlantic Dick Gregory is Alive and Well
Dick Gregory is America's best-known black comedian. He is also a civil rights campaigner who uses satire to put across views no less militant than those of any demonstrator.
He's also a brave man. Asked to lecture to a racially mixed audience at the University of Alabama in Tuscaloosa, he knew the risks - and was honest enough to confess his fears.
But he went ahead, and didn'so much lecture as harangue his audience, devoting his address to what he calls 'the moral pollution of the country,' jibing at American history texts, television commercials, and the attitudes of white liberals who support the black cause
The programme tonight looks at Gregory's life in Chicago, his involvement in satire and civil rights, but devotes most of its time to his address in Alabama.

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.
