: MAN ALIVE

Achievement ... Happiness ... Tragedy ... Stress ...
A weekly programme which focuses on people and the situations which shape their lives
Reporters: Jim Douglas Henry Jeremy James , John Percival Desmond Wilcox
Harold Williamson
This week: PANTO
Principal boys used to be girls-now they are boys. This year we have Jimmy Tarbuck at the London Palladium. But at the Victoria Theatre, Salford, there's Bryan Johnson. Remember him? Runner-up at the Eurovision Song Contest in 1960. This year he's Robin Hood.
But Nurse Twinkle is a man-
Ronnie Coyles. He lives in a flat in Morecambe, far from the sea. The summer season is over, so until opening night he must watch his savings carefully. Rehearsals are hard work but unpaid. That is how pantomime survives.
Man Alive goes behind the scenes and traces Babes in the Wood from its early birth pangs right through to the grand finale when Robin gets his Maid Marian and the Sheriff of Nottingham hies off to the woods with Nurse Twinkle-all in Salford, Lanes.
Producer, ADAM CLAPHAM
Edited by DESMOND WILCOX and 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.
