: Panorama: Divorce... Who Should Pay?

Presented by Fred Emery
Panorama investigates the growing pressure for reform of the law to unscramble the increasingly bitter financial consequences of marriage breakdown.
Today, one marriage in five ends in divorce, a fact made easier and cheaper by the Divorce Reform Act of 1969. But the new freedom has frequently brought with it financial misery.
Over half-a-million children and their divorced mothers live on social security. More than 2,000 divorced men go to jail each year for failing to pay maintenance to their ex-wives. Increasingly, men Protest that in an age of women's liberation punitive maintenance Payments force them into lifelong Poverty.
As the Law Commission prepares to publish a paper examining the issues of maintenance payments and the law, Philip Tibenham reports on the financial plight of the divorced.

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.
