The long way, but it will help in the understanding of it:
$timestamp = "20020305211704";
$year = substr($timestamp, 0, 4);
$month = substr($timestamp, 4, 2);
$day = substr($timestamp, 6, 2);
$hour = substr($timestamp, 8, 2);
$minute = substr($timestamp, 10, 2);
$second = substr($timestamp, 12, 2);
$utime = mktime($hour, $minute, $second, $month, $day, $year);
$longdate = date('l, F jS, Y @ g:i:sp');
