The Yamaguchis' Story
Mr Yamaguchi is a typical Tokyo 'salaryman': workaholic, conformist and, like most Japanese, uninterested in religion.
When his wife discovers he's been having an affair, and tries to kill herself, their world is thrown into confusion.
In search of help,
Mrs Yamaguchi joins Shinnyuen, one of the new evangelistic Buddhist sects that have grown up in the post-war period. She becomes a 'born-again Buddhist'.
Mr Yamaguchi is horrified.
Buddhism for him is reserved for funeral services; he distrusts Shinnyuen's new-fangled style.
This film traces what happens to the Yamaguchis' marriage, and looks at how the new sects are answering the spiritual needs of people who have suffered the flip-side of the economic miracle.

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.
