No rights to property, earnings, children or even their own bodies - such was the lowly status accorded married women in Victorian England. Only one was exempt: Queen Victoria. But three women dared to break the rules.
This film, first shown last year as part of Victorian Week, recalls how their rebellion struck at the very heart of the establishment, resulting in a prime minister being taken to court and the heir to the throne occupying the witness box for two of the most scandalous cases of the 19th century.

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.
