```Hi Ulrich,

The date is in AbsoluteTime format. You can convert it using DateList
like this:

dl = {DatePlus[#], RandomInteger[{1, 40}]} & /@ (Range[12]*-1);
Manipulate[
{
DateListPlot[dl, Joined -> True],
Dynamic[{DateList[p1[[1, 1]]], p1[[1, 2]]}]
} // Column,
{{p1, dl[[4]]}, Locator}
]

Cheers -- Sjoerd
