: The Marriage

A documentary serial in six parts with Desmond Wilcox 3: For Richer for Poorer
The honeymoon is over and the gritty realities of married life - and domestic budgets - face Marc and Karen. Within weeks of taking their vows in church the strain is beginning to show. There are quarrels about money and disillusions about each other. Their dream cottage in the country is falling down and the Borough Council is failing to help. Karen's parents are worried about the young couple and Marc is even in trouble with his rugby team for not training hard enough. Something has to break. It proves to be Marc's car - the final financial blow to the young couple. But, just as in the soap operas, they fight back - together.

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.
