A truly great BBC documentary strand
21 June 2007 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

I have been lucky enough over the past years to work on the original film masters of quite a few episodes of Man Alive. I can honestly say that it is a fantastic documentary strand. It would be fantastic if the BBC could bring this back but, unfortunately, I don't think this sort of honest programe making could ever strive in the celebrity, quick-cut world of modern broadcasting. Man Alive managed to capture real people and tell real stories. Be it amusing stories such as "How to Make Boyhood Last Forever" where we meet grown men whom hang onto there boyhood hobbies such as the vicar with a full size steam engine in his garden and grown men who play cowboys and indians! It also tackled serious concerns in Britain during the 60's and 70's such as the three day week, strikes, abortion and homosexuality.

A truly fascinating programe also with a great theme tune. The BBC will most likely be making these available in the next few years.
