Screenplay by RONALD JEANS
Produced by Norman Williams
Directed by Anthony Simmons
This is a sophisticated marital comedy about a young couple who are heirs to a fortune but who discover that, under the terms of their Aunt Clarissa's will, they cannot receive the money while they are married. After some futile but hilarious attempts to make both ends meet by taking in paying guests-who are not the paying kind-the couple eventually decide on divorce. This arrangement is to last for only a year, and then they will re-marry. But the best-laid plans ...

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.
