"Nobody seriously questions the need for planning in the management of a western Industrial democracy..." The trite truisms flow from the planners. The people to whom the planning is being done use a blunter vocabulary, as in the pit villages in the North-East. What does all this planning mean at the human level? What is it like to be one of the miners threatened with unemployment? Man Alive travels south from a pit village in Northumberland with two miners who have had to pack up and move out with the wife and kids.
Musical milestones from the golden days of the silver screen.

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.
