: MARRIAGE

Five programmes on the situation now
1: Choosing
Marriages would, in general, be. as happy and often more so if they were all made by the Lord Chancellor
DR. JOHNSON
Produced by ROGER OWEN
How do people choose each other -and why? This first programme looks at such phenomena as computer dating and ' arranged' marriages. What is romantic love? How do people know they are in love? Is there a more objective guide to matrimony? Isn'there a pattern in marital conflict? What do Marriage Guidance Counsellors do-and why do they do it? What is the state of the divorce laws? Is marriage especially difficult in our days? These are some of the themes in this series.
There are contributions from a wide assortment of people-married and single-and some distinguished speculations from such names as Marjorie Proops , Dr. Edmond Leach , Sir Alan Herbert , and Professor 0. R. MacGregor. The series offers no answersand raises many questions.

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

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.
