: Modern Times: Tory Wives

In tonight's edition of the documentary series about how we live today, wives of Tory MPs talk candidly about the toll that their husbands's careers have had on them and their families. See today's choices.
Ladies of the House: page 31

Modern Times 9.00pm BBC2
"When I first got married," says Anita Townsend, wife of ex-MP Cyril, "an old Peeress said to me 'My dear, you will either become a drunkard, get religion or take a lover'." Not a good prognosis - so why do women marry into the politics? Tonight's Modern Times looks at the sometimes lonely life of Tory wives, often left alone in the constituency while their husbands stalk the corridors of power.
Lady Hannam, wife of Exeter MP Sir John, calls these dutiful spouses "Stepford wives". "I find their loyalty to a system which makes them and their families such victims rather puzzling," she says. "Look at all the broken marriages, resentful wives, resentful children." Modern Times follows a group of wives through a particularly turbulent summer; read more about political bedfellows on page 31.

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.
