: The Life and Loves of a She Devil

Julie T Wallace , an unknown actress with a few fringe theatre credits to her name, beat off a dozen more experienced rivals to the role of Ruth in director
Philip Saville 's four-part adaptation of Fay Weldon 's novel of marital discord and revenge. Saville was looking for an actress over six feet tall, capable of looking hideous but still sexy, and publicised his search in the press. Wallace replied with a five-page letter "which showed," " says Saville, "an extraordinary understanding of the book".
Havingwon the part, Wallace had to gain a stone and a half, wear false teeth and have full
"ugly" make-up, and she was unforgettable as Ruth, the spurned wife of philandering
Bobbo (Dennis Waterman ), and the show won the Bafta award for best series.
In this first episode Bobbo tells Ruth he has fallen in love with someone else, accusing his wife of being "a she devil. From that moment on, she is endowed with strange powers that help her in the quest for revenge. EinaO'Brien HERSELF Sue Cook........................................... HERSELF

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

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.
