The second of six programmes about what happens to more than one in three marriages. Past Loves, Past Lives. In this film, Roger Lee Brown , a vicar and historian from South
Wales, charts an irreverent and surprising journey through the troubled history of marital break-up in Britain. It involves spying private detectives, children abandoned in homes and the shunning of those stigmatised by divorce. Lord Hailsham and Leo Abse explore how divorce reform eventually changed the scene, but as Roger Lee Brown shows, even when divorce was illegal, people always found a way to rid themselves of unwanted spouses.

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.
