: Man Alive: What is a Happening?

A weekly programme which focuses on people and the situations which shape their lives.
Reporters: Angela Huth, Jeremy James, John Percival, Trevor Philpott, Desmond Wilcox

This week: What is a Happening?
...and who are the Beautiful People? What is it like to live - and not sleep - a 'fourteen-hour Technicolour Dream'? Seven thousand English people went through a night of psychedelic experience at Alexandra Palace finding out. So did three Man Alive film crews and their reporters. There were never less than three pop groups playing; there were inflatable plastic events; mountains of bananas; concerts of coloured lights. The organisers made a profit and the message of love, beauty, peace, and gentleness was spread. Whether you are square or groovy, way out or mellow yellow, you ought to try and understand-it seems there are going to be more.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

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.
