: The Other Half

with John Pitman
Last of six love stories about people in the public eye and the partners who share their private lives. Victor and Marilyn
Since 1971 Victor Lownes , the 55-year-old former boss of Playboy, has had an on-off affair with retired bunny Marilyn Cole , 20 years younger. For the past two years, however, they have been faithful and now there is even talk of marriage (remember, you read it here first).
For Marilyn, who used to work at the Co-op in Portsmouth, it's a bit like a modern Cinderella story. An estate in Hertfordshire, a house in Chelsea and a millionaire who keeps her in a style to which she wasn't accustomed.
Life is a cabaret for the girl who made history as the first full frontal centre-fold. The future, too, looks bright. Victor recently changed his will. 'I thought about my responsibility to Marilyn - so she is now an heiress.' Does she ever feel like a kept woman? 'Oh no, I don't.' says Marilyn, 'he doesn't give me enough money ...'

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.
