A film in four acts starring
Liv Ullmann , Erland Josephson
Act 1: Jenny Isaksson is a highly qualified, successful psychiatrist, comfortably married to a gifted colleague. While her husband is at a medical congress, Jenny visits her grandparents - and finds that she cannot cope with the memories that flood back ...
Ingmar Bergman 's own personal turmoil is reflected in this story of a breakdown followed by an agonising rebirth. Each act marks a distinct stage of the disaster and offers separate possibilities for the future.

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.
