Five married couples wake up one day to discover that, owing to a legal technicality, they aren'married at all!
This is an example of the popular Hollywood' portmanteau' picture. Several separate stories loosely connected provide an opportunity for featuring a large and extremely impressive cast. Marilyn Monroe is seen in one of her early roles, as a contestant in a beauty competition-one of the essential qualifications for which is to be married. The picture was directed by Edmund Goulding , responsible for last week's film Mister 880.

Tuesday's Documentary

Your future is being decided now -for better or for worse?

The 'Gospel of Work' is hard to shake off. When we get the chance of more free time, many of us shy away. Perhaps we enjoy our time off only because we know it must come to an end. But what will happen when it doesn't?

Professor Dennis Gabor says the age of leisure, if it comes too early, could be as big a potential threat to society as the atom-bomb.

Some Britons already have a four-day week. In Lancashire there's even now a three-day week. Industrial change will bring more spare time for everybody.
Are we ready or will leisure mean more of us seeking refuge in alcohol, drugs, and fantasy?

From new-style educational holiday camps to giant 'fun bubbles' to roll around in, the battle's on to liven us up on the threshold of the age of leisure.

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 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 find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

This is a historical record of both 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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
