A weekly programme which focuses on people and the situations which shape their lives

This week:
THE SQUATTERS-1 demonstrating-arguing with the police and authorities. The Squatters are a militant group, growing in size, who put homeless families into empty buildings-then barricade them in. They usually pick target property belonging to local councils to draw attention to their cause-the plight of the homeless.
Cathy Come Home may have stirred the conscience of the nation, but more than two years later the situation has grown worse rather than better. Council waiting-lists have lengthened, the army of homeless has increased in size. Nobody denies the acuteness of the problem. But is the Squatters' way the best way to do something about it? Militant action certainly makes headlines but will it cure the condition? In the first of two programmes Man Alive examines the Squatters and how they operate.

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.
