Five old schoolfriends get together for a raucous hen night after Susie announces she's getting married. See today's choices.
Producer Debbie Shewell ; Director Philip Davis
For ever friends: page 20

Real Women 9.30pm BBC1

Assemble a fine female cast and give them a decent script to work with. It's a simple formula, but one that isn't tried often enough. Redressing the problem is this three-parter from writer Susan Oudot, in which Michelle Collins, Pauline Quirke, Lesley Manville, Frances Barber and Gwyneth Strong play childhood friends.
All five have followed radically different paths, but have kept in touch and reunite here for Collins's hen party. As the night unfolds, taking them from upmarket restaurant to male strip club, we realise that all is not rosy for any of these women. The advice of Quirke's stroppy husband fortunately goes unheeded: "You ain't a bunch of kids no more, so don't go making a prat of yourself," he hurls at his wife as she walks out the door. No chance, mate.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
