There Was This Man... is a unit of the BBC schools radio series Music Makers from the 1970s, covering music for primary and secondary school pupils.

A "revue-style" comedy (i.e. a series of musical sketches loosely connected by a theme) based on early mankind, with some actually genuine archaeological and anthropological facts thrown in.
