In Britain today almost four million people are widowed: left to face the emotional and practical problems of life without a partner in a society where talking openly about death has become the great 20th-century taboo.
In a series of four programmes Jenni Mills talks to widows and widowers about some of the problems they have been left to face.
1: Margaret and George Margaret lost her husband six months ago - he died suddenly, leaving her with three growing boys to bring up alone with very little money.
George's wife died three years ago when she was only 28. They had two very young sons, and George has found the juggling of both mother and father roles on top of his emotional feelings extremely hard to cope with.

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.
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.
