: Face to Face

The last of four programmes starring Liv Ullmann Erland Josephson
Act 4: Although she is able to assure her daughter Anna that she will not try to commit suicide again, Jenny is unable to bridge the gulf that has grown between them. This new source of anxiety is dispelled as she watches her grandmother lovingly reassure her dying grandfather. A sense of reconciliation overwhelms Jenny as her life starts again.
Ingmar Bergman's own personal turmoil is reflected in this story of a shockingly quick breakdown followed by an agonising rebirth.

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.
