: Man Alive: No Fixed Abode

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

This week: No Fixed Abode
The description on the police charge sheet at a magistrate's court - a description that fits at least a thousand men and women in London alone. People who wander the city streets, sleep where they can, in parks and stations, until the police move them on. Their numbers are on the increase and the authorities are worried by the problem. Perhaps the most perplexing aspect of the situation is the number of women living this way. Who are they? Where do they come from? What lives did they lead before this one? And why do they prefer the life they have now?

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.

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.
