: The Marriage

The last of a six-part documentary serial with Desmond Wilcox
To Love and to Cherish ...
AsLongas We Both Shall Live On the eve of their first wedding anniversary Marc and Karen have come through a tempestuous 12 months. Financial crises and rows about money, the loss of their dream home, the reappearance of an ex-girlfriend to threaten their marriage, Marc's redundancy from his full-time job - and the wettest summer for 50 years. Karen's parents have watched it all, sometimes with their fingers crossed. Marc's brother and sister have seen the change in Marc, and are not sure they completely approve of the new, more responsible, husband figure that has replaced the man once known as the 'ram of Cardiff. But
Marc and Karen are still as much in love, still together, moving into a new home, talking of starting a family - and looking forward to the rest of their marriage. Film cameramen

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.
