: Times Remembered

They have treasured memories of other times -firm views about present times.
In the race for today few of us spare enough time to listen - even to learn-from people who also know about yesterday, as they talk to the Man Alive reporters

: Man Alive: The Mood of America: 1: Kent, Ohio

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

This week: The Mood of America: 1: Kent, Ohio
Four students were shot dead, more wounded, when National Guardsmen opened fire during a campus demonstration against American involvement in Cambodia. And a small university town, tragically, makes world headlines.
The shootings at Kent State University hardened attitudes that had been there all along. Militant students now see the enemy as coming out into the open. Diehard townspeople talk of a chance to 'finish the job' the National Guard started and put down what they call 'the freaks and hippies' for good. Both university and town authorities waver between repression and conciliation.
Moderates on both sides have become uncertain. Above all, the situation in Kent underlines the failure of understanding between generations: between rebellious youngsters and anxious parents, between radical students and conservative townspeople.
In the first of four programmes John Percival reports on the tensions underlying the present mood of America.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
