A Very Nuclear Family by JENNIFER PHILLIPS with Prunella Scales as Nora James Warwick as Harry Glynis Brooks as Jill Rod Beacham as Joe
For a newly married couple still living in her parents' home, an obsession with wedding presents In a consumer society is normal enough, but the fact that Joe poisons a rabbit, Jill threatens to kill herself and Nora is over-fond of her son-in-law, suggests that beneath the good humour and chat over the morning papers, someone hides a very private soft of weapon for destruction.
Directed by LIANE AUKIN
(Repeated: Sun 11 May)
. (Prunella Scales is in Make and Break ' at the Haymarket Theatre, London)

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.
