: MAN ALIVE

A weekly programme which focuses on people and the situations which shape their lives

This week:
HEALTH IN BLACK HANDS
A row has broken out about Commonwealth and immigrant doctors in British hospitals: an argument with all the overtones of being not so much about medicine as about colour. Critics challenge their competence as doctors and nurses in British hospitals. But senior medical men point out that Britain's elaborate health service couldn't operate on the basis of white manpower. More than a third of the doctors and nurses in British hospitals come from abroad.
They come in search of training but have much to give as well as to receive. It would appear to be a fair exchange. But is it? Many training appointments in teaching hospitals seem closed to them and most must fill posts which white British doctors and nurses appear not to want. Is the row in our health service going to damage the relationship between immigrant doctors and British patients? Or is there a problem which should be brought out into the open and examined?

: THE HOLLYWOOD MUSICAL

Tonight: the 1946 production
Blue Skies starring
BING CROSBY , FRED ASTAIRE JOAN CAULFIELD
With
Billy De Wolfe , Olga San Juan
Lyrics and music by IRVING BERLIN
Screenplay by ARTHUR SHEEKMAN
Adaptation by ALLAN SCOTT
Produced by Sol C. Siegel
Directed by Stuart Heisler
A musical comedy about a very pretty girl and the two men who love her, told against the background of many memorable Irving Berlin songs including ' A pretty girl is like a melody,' 'White Christmas,' ' How deep is the ocean,' and of course ' Blue Skies.'
The relations between the people putting on a Broadway show have been the starting point for many a successful Hollywood musical, and Blue Skies is one of these.
It all happens after the first world war, and starts with a vintage musical comedy situation when a dancer, Jed Potter , falls in love with Mary, one of the prettiest girls in the chorus. It's just too bad for Jed that when he takes Mary for a drink in a night-club she meets his friend Johnny Adams.
The singing and dancing talents of Bing Crosby and Fred Astaire and the music and lyrics of Irving Berlin are the major ingredients in Blue Skies, as they were in Holiday Inn, previously seen on BBC-1. Of the other players, Joan Caulfield was last seen on BBC-1 in Dear Ruth, and Billy De Wolfe appeared in London in How to Succeed in Business Without
Really Trying.

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.
