A weekly programme which focuses on people and the situations which shape their lives.
This week: Stars for Sale
The star business is a money spinner. About every mass circulation newspaper or magazine has its star column and its professional star gazer. The public, they say, demands them-and anyway, they add, it's only harmless fun. But is it so harmless? Man Alive tonight examines some British astrologers, their craft, the addicts, and doctors, who maintain that astrology has the power not only to amuse-but kill.

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.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
