: So You Think You're a Good Wife?

Nothing can match, where'er we roam,
An English wife in an English home ALFRED AUSTIN:
' On Returning to England'
Last July, Cliff Michelmore put Britain's married men on the spot with a special quiz for husbands. Tonight it's the wives' turn. If you're a wife, you can gain points for being good company, understanding, practical, keeping your head in emergencies - or lose points if you nag, don'know his tastes, or let him down in public. Jimmy Young helps you check on whether you're a good shopper. Taking the test in the studio-with their husbands there to see they don'cheat - are
Actress Elspet Gray (and Brian Rix )
Authoress Margaret Powell (and Albert Powell )
Footballer's wife Kathy Peters (and Martin Peters ) Jean Metcalfe
(supervised by Cliff Michelmore ) and a further 50 wives (plus husbands to keep an eye on them) as a cross-section of society.
Designer DICK COLES
Director DAVID JOHN KENNARD

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
