Sunday Cinema: Wives


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.
starring Anne Marie Ottersen
Froydis Armand , Katja Medbee
Anja Breien 's entertaining picture of three wives on the spree in Oslo provides a neat counterpoint to John Cassavetes 's Husbands, shown last night. Kaja, Heidrun and Mie meet at a school reunion: schnapps and snapshots awaken old friendships and by the next morning they have decided to take time off from their jobs and domestic routines.
Directed by ANJA BREIEN , Films: pane 17 (first showing on British television)

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.
