: One Pair of Eyes: You Must Make People Angry

is Mai Zetterling's theme in this series of highly personal films.
In tonight's One Pair of Eyes Mai Zetterling gives her own provocative views on the world as she sees it - views on marriage, on the pressures of contemporary society, on women and on her own attempts to live without compromising.
This is a film about the making of a film - a short film Mai Zetterling has directed expressly for this programme in which she states her belief in what she calls "an awareness of life". In it the husband and wife are acted by her close friends the actor Joss Ackland and his real wife Rose Mary.

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.
