Reporters: Angela Huth, Jeremy James, John Percival, Trevor Philpott, Desmond Wilcox

This week: Marriage Under Stress: 3: 'Put Asunder'

The man, the woman - and the children of broken marriages. Secondhand people - or is that just the way everybody else treats them? What happens when a marriage is finally over? Who suffers most? And what chance of a new life is there for the men and women who have been 'put asunder'? In 1967 more marriages than ever will end in the divorce courts. More people will wind up trying to start again. But the rows do not always finish there: children sometimes become the ammunition between parted parents. The bitterness does not always stop with divorce. This is the third and last of three programmes examining marriage under stress.

: Mind and Motive: 2: Cruelty and Anger

A series of six programmes presented by The Director of the Department of Psychological Medicine, Guy's Hospital.

None of us can be sure that violence may not suddenly come into our lives. It may come from outside - the violence of crime or protest or society's, attempt to combat these. But it may also come from within - our own violent feelings towards other people, often those we most love. Tonight's programme explores the origin of violence.
With The Director of the Department of Child Psychiatry, Guy's Hospital.

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.
