: Ten Years of Man Alive

1973: Herne Bay is Alive With the Sound of Music
The seventh in a short season from earlier programmes. Rodgers and Hammerstein's The Sound of Music is a big production. There is a cast of children, nuns, novices, postulants, neighbours of Captain von Trapp and assorted Nazis. There is thunder, lightning and special moonlight effects. The feature film has become the biggest money spinner in the history of cinema musicals. The Sound of Music opened at the Lunt-Fontanhe Theatre in New York on 16 November 1959; the London production at the Palace Theatre started on 18 May 1961. On 12 February 1973 The Sound of Music opened in Herne Bay-an amateur production.
JACK PIZZEY was there with a Man Alive film team to chronicle the birth pangs of this ambitious enterprise.

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.
