This week:
THE AVERAGE WAY OF LIFE
If you're married with two children and with about £ 23 a week coming into the house you will already know all about the problems of spinning out money to make ends meet. And you are far from being alone in this-in fact, you're Mr. Average.
The British national average wage is exactly ;E22 5s. 3d., the highest it's ever been. But this doesn'make you Midas, and living on it is nearly always a question of what can'be afforded, what has to go. How do you decide what it shall be? How do you sort out priorities?
Man Alive looks at four families living their lives in very different ways and with only their pay-packet in common. When it comes to spending it they are poles apart, separated by attitudes and ambitions.
Do you save, or live to the hilt?
Would you consider HP? Is it moFe important to have a holiday or better clothes for your children? Can you ever own your own home? Is £ 23 a week a reasonable sum on which to bring up a family? What is the ' average ' life like?

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.
