: Forty Minutes

of documentary
A series of films portraying issues, institutions and individuals.
Divorce - Unreasonable Behaviour 'It's just unbelievable that somebody who once professed to love you could turn around and make these allegations ' It is estimated that one in three marriages will end in divorce. The marriage of Eric and Lesley is one digit in the doleful statistics, and their children Thomas, James and Natalie are three of the 163,000 minors involved in divorce each year. This documentary film is an in-depth study of one of the biggest disasters that can befall a family. For after a series of quarrels, after court orders excluding him from the marital home and contact with his family, Eric is told by his wife's solicitor that she is suing for divorce. Eric opposes divorce, and fights for his marriage, and access to his children. The only hope seems to be the new approach of conciliation by Court Welfare Officers.

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.
