Daughters of de Beauvoir
A documentary film looking at the influence the French writer Simone de Beauvoir 's work and unconventional lifestyle have had on women throughout the world.
Her life story, with all its conflicting emotion and experience, is told in parallel with the stories of the women appearing in the film, all of whom cite Simone de Beauvoir as a major force in their lives, in the year that marks the 40th anniversary of the publication of her best-known book, The Second Sex. With Kate Millett , Marge Piercy , Eva Figes , Ann Oakley , Simone's sister Helene ('Poupette' in the autobiographies), her adopted daughter Sylvie Ie Bon de Beauvoir and three women for whom reading Simone de Beauvoir's books proved inspiring and disturbing.

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 information about 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 use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of 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.
