Six love stories about six very different couples people in the public eye and the partners who share their private lives.
3: Gillian and Peter Gillian Lynne , top theatre director and choreographer of Cats, is 52. Her husband Peter Land , an actor, is 30. They met and fell in love when she staged the musical My Fair Lady in which Peter played the juvenile lead. When Peter proposed, Gillian was hesitant: 'I thought he should be made fully aware of all the drawbacks - like the fact that I wouldn't be able to give him children.' But they did marry three years ago and are very happy, despite all the sceptics who said it just couldn't work.
At the moment Gillian is the main breadwinner because Peter is still struggling to make the big time: 'But as far as I'm concerned - and it's difficult to convince him-our family is a business. And therefore it's family money. All of it.'

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.
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.
