: The Late Film: Diary of a Mad Housewife

starring Richard Benjamin
Frank Langella , Carrie Snodgress For Jonathan Balser , a smugly affluent New York lawyer, success is measured by being seen at parties with the 'right' people, and knowing how to order overpriced French wines. But for Tina, his long-suffering wife, the dreadful conformity and social climbing are an increasing burden. In desperation she embarks on an affair which, for all its sexual satisfaction, brings her even more mental strain ...
Frank Perry 's satire on New York high society is one of the most acerbic and brilliant comedies of the past decade.

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.
