Man Alive: Those People Next Door


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.
investigates, discovers, questions This week: Those People Next Door
'We choose our friends and enemies. but God gives us our neighbours.'
You can't insure against bad neighbours, but they can blight your home and peace-of-mind much more disastrously than a combination of mere dry rot and a leaky roof. A burning feud may be sparked by no more than a cup of sugar - never replaced - borrowed 19 years ago. Or early morning lawn mowing. Or the same piece of music played too often and too loudly. Nerves tighten, tempers flare. Threats, retaliations, even the law can follow. Neighbours have wound up in prison.
Jeanne La Chard looks at these neighbourly wars - often amusing to outsiders, never so to the participants - and asks what, if anything, can be done to solve them.


Reporter: Jeanne La Chard
Producer: Ruth Jackson
Editor: Tim Slessor

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
