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.

This week he asks: 'What's the connection between Little Jack Horner and Bonnie Prince Charlie , or between the repeating telegraph and The Sound of Music - and what would Tuesday nights be like without that connection? '

Already a legend in the movie world, one of the most popular films ever made is shown on British television for the first time.

In spite of a daunting start, Maria soon wins the confidence of the children, her irrepressible sense of fun undermining their father's stem discipline - as well as his plans for a second marriage.

The New Sound of Music

Only a century ago, many of the sounds we now take for granted as music could not even have been imagined - let alone played. Today, synthesisers, computers and multitrack recording techniques give the composer amazing scope and freedom.
In The New Sound of Music, Michael Rodd reveals some of the highlights of this extraordinary story of musical pioneering, and takes you into the magic world of White-Noise, Saw-Tooth, Square-Wave and Digital Sequencers. Part of the film focuses on how the BBC Radiophonic Workshop makes such contrasting music as the Dr Who signature tune and the much-praised background music for Jonathan Miller's The Body in Question.
It also features musicians like Rick Wakeman and others creating intriguingly bizarre, yet often highly melodious sounds using an amazing variety of novel instruments.

Buskers

Second of two programmes Underground
The sound of music can be exciting or annoying when heard down a corridor in London's Underground. It brings some life to the dead tunnels with their endless rush of feet - but it is illegal! The Buskers play a constant ' cops and robbers ' game with London Transport Police, who have to enforce the law by arresting or moving them on. Professional musicians of skill and virtuosity often mingle and improvise with amateurs - violinists, guitarists, folk singers and even out-of-work school-leavers play together. They are all trying to earn a living.
Watch their hazardous and entertaining lives when the cameras follow them ' underground '.

Buskers

Buskers are traditional street entertainers who have been around since Roman times. Today, London has many places where the art of the busker is still alive-both in the streets and underground. The sound of music can be exciting or annoying when heard down a corridor in London's underground. Who will be playing around the corner? The echoing music brings some life to the dead tunnels with their endless rush of feet - but it is illegal.
The buskers play a constant cops and robbers' game with London Transport Police, who have to enforce the law, by arresting or moving them on. Professional musicians of skill and virtuosity often mingle and improvise with amateurs.
Above ground fire-eaters, escapologists, magicians, sword-swallowers, jugglers and singers all vie with each other to capture the imagination of the passersby.
The buskers' hazardous and adventurous lives are followed by the cameras along the streets and the underground.

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.
