Five programmes on outside interests for women at home

1: Housewife's Choice?

Introduced by John Stockbridge


Executive producer, BERYL RADLET

Repeated on Monday, 7.0 p.m. (BBC-2) Free time: how to make it, and what to do with it. That's what these five programmes are about. Once marriage and maternity were all a woman seemed to want. But not today. Many feel hemmed in. The kitchen has become a prison, they say, and a baby bolts the doors.

How can they reconcile a life of their own with a job well done for children and husband? But these are not programmes about moaning malcontents: they concentrate on women who are tackling these problems-making new friends, finding fresh outlets, learning something new. and even embarking on part-time work.

Highlights from my birth date:
16.00: Watch with Mother: The Flowerpot Men
20.45: Panorama - A fortnightly topical magazine.

and bizarrely
23.00: News (sound only)

Suspect schedules were not your normal Wednesday output, as every other program was Royal Ascot. And how can a fortnightly program be topical?
