Man Alive: Not on Speaking Terms

Synopsis

We have produced a Style Guide to help editors follow a standard format when editing a listing. If you are unsure how best to edit this programme please take a moment to read it.
Reporters: Jeremy James, Jeanne La Chard, John Pitman, Desmond Wilcox, Harold Williamson

The modern home is usually bombarded with words - television, the telephone, radio and newspapers. Yet families often find it difficult to communicate on a personal level: husbands and wives who live under the same roof sometimes don't, won't or can't talk to each other.
They may share their children, meals, even the same bed, and yet one partner has nothing to say to the other. How do two people with so much in common get to a point where there is no verbal communication? What keeps these silent couples together?
Jeanne La Chard and a Man Alive film team have been talking to the husbands and wives who are not on speaking terms.
(The golden sounds of silence: pp 12-13)

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
