: Man Alive: The Other Woman

A weekly programme which focuses on people and the situations which shape their lives.
Reporters: Angela Huth, Jeremy James, John Percival, Trevor Philpott, Desmond Wilcox

This week: The Other Woman
The kept woman, the mistress-clothed in mink, dripping with diamonds: the good-time girl - getting the best from a man, without the responsibility of being married to him: the marriage-breaker: the tart. The popular - one could almost say conventional - image of 'the other woman' draws more from fiction than reality. For her in reality there is loneliness, a particularly hurting kind of jealousy, and a few snatched moments of furtive happiness. Whether she is morally right or wrong, do we understand her life?

: Thirty-Minute Theatre: Who Were You With Last Night?

by Brian Phelan.
[Starring] Valerie Gearon as Vera, Frederick Jaeger as Denis, John Standing as Henry, Mary Chester as the maid

Henry must have had a very good reason for suggesting that his future wife Vera and his best friend Denis spend the night together in a hotel. He could hardly object then when they came home for breakfast and she said, 'Good morning darling, hero we are-reeking of sin' - or could he?

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.
