A documentary serial in six parts with Desmond Wilcox 1:To Have and to Hold
When Marc and Karen agreed to marry they also volunteered to let film cameras follow their first year together - always said by the experts to be the most difficult year, even without the BBC as part of the family. Marc, trained in hotel work but working as a teacher, at 26 was a thorough-going bachelor with a penchant for rugby, beer and ladies - more or less in that order. But, he s swore, marriage would change all that. Karen, at 20, g training as a psychiatric a nurse had no doubts. She was sure of her man and didn't agree with Marc's parents that he was too immature for marriage. They planned an old fashioned church wedding in June sunshine with a horse and carriage, bridesmaids and flowers. After a secret honeymoon they planned to live in a dream cottage in the country. But real-life soap operas aren't like that. Ahead of the stars of this one were to be many disasters, and dramas, before they reached their first anniversary.
