: MAN ALIVE

Achievement ... Happiness.... Tragedy ... Stress ...
A weekly programme which focuses on people and the situations which shape their lives
Reporters: Jim Douglas Henry Angela Huth , Jeremy James
John Percival , Desmond Wilcox Harold Williamson
This week:
THE MATING MARKET
Up in the Catskill Mountains, two hours' drive from New York City, stands the Concord Hotel, a vast concrete camp renowned for one speciality-mating.
Here most weekends a human hotchpotch of 3,000 men and women pay nearly £ 20 a day to be herded together, like cattle in a market, and forcefully paired off by a social hostess called Rose.
Girls living dull city lives plan their robes and their roles weeks ahead; men who are normally office clerks promote themselves to lawyers and doctors. Most of the women are hunting for husbands. Most of the men are not hunting for wives.
It's a loud, brassy, boozy free-for-all. But despite the seemingly jolly veneer the more honest among the participants will admit that the whole scene is a sad charade. Even the snow on the ski-slopes was artificial.
Producer, BILL MORTON

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
