Nearly 40 years since the release of Tammy Wynette 's signature hit Stand by Your
Man, Alabama-born singer Candi Staton explores the changes in attitudes towards violent male-female relations since Wynette's tale of unqualifed worship.
Having suffered at the hands of two abusive partners, Staton - best known for her 1976 hit Young Hearts Run Free - presents a music-based documentary that features a personal account of her own troubles. With contributions from Sheryl Gascoigne
(estranged wife of footballer Paul Gascoigne ), singers David Soul and Tina Turner , and Boy George and his mother, Dinah O'Dowd. Paul Gambaccini offers music-related input with tracks by Tracy Chapman , the Dixie Chicks, Alice Cooper , Tina Turner , Chris Rea and Jamelia.

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.
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.
