: States of Mind: Family Therapy: Endings, Anniversary

Last in a series of six programmes penetrating the private and confidential world of a family in therapy, both at home and in the consulting room.

Nine months have now passed since the family commenced their therapy. Sara's troughs of depression, extravagant mood swings and irritatingly immature behaviour had been the motivating force behind the move into counselling in the first place. She has now turned 18 and has become a happy, confident young woman.
Such a radical transformation has made her parents, Jack and Marian, finally realise that she is the most stable of all the family members.
Rather than Sara, it is their marriage which is in need of attention. But, as the therapy draws to a close, they celebrate their 25th wedding anniversary safe in the knowledge that at least now they are equipped to face the future with greater understanding of each other and their two daughters.

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.
