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

Two brides - two very different couples. Norma has lived all her life in Poplar in London's East End and now has married Barry whom she met on a blind date. They courted for two years and were married from her mother's home, just by the gasometer off the East India Dock Road. The reception was a noisy knees-up in the local church hall.
Diana, one of the last of the real debs, used to have a flat in Kensington and now has married Timothy, a former escort. They were officially engaged for three months and were married from her parents' home in Buckinghamshire. The reception, for 600 friends, was in a marquee on the lawn near the swimming pool in her father's garden. For the preparations and the weddings Man Alive was there.

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.
