: Man Alive: Packing Up and Moving Out

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, Harold Williamson

"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.

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.
