: Tuesday's Documentary A Woman's Place

What's a lifetime worth if marriage is the only experience you've had within it?
There is that biological difference but whether you make that the lynch pin of your argument - that because they can be pregnant and breast feed, women must therefore be only mothers and wives - depends on what you want in your society. JULIET MITCHELL
The average modern family consists of father, mother, and two children living apart from other relations in a separate little box of a house. It's a convenient type of family to have in our industrial and fast-changing society. It can move around from place to place as father changes his job. But is it a happy family? Some experts think it isn't-and millions of women know it isn't.
What's the alternative? Do we try to ease things a bit by paying women wages for housework? By sending them to college when their children have grown up?
Or do we try something drastic by abolishing housewives altogether, by abolishing husbands, by abolishing the difference in sex roles between men and women?
Or do we join men and women in groups with various sexual and living arrangements - ' communes.'? Or do we revolutionise the whole economic and social basis of society as they have in the kibbutzim - the collective settlements of Israel?

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
