Now We Are Married

First transmitted in 1958, Mr and Mrs Findlater take a light-hearted look at the daily routines of three other married couples. They follow the wives as they carry out domestic duties and the husbands at work, described as 'a club, no women admitted', a view reinforced by their lunches! Each shares their feelings about their roles and marriage. Young Mrs Coppard jokes about escaping abroad, while older Mrs Gyle-Thompson reflects on the changes she has undergone. Mr Clark, the husband with the lowest income, describes why he's content and wouldn't swap his wife for anyone. Some interesting interviews are also captured in the pub one Sunday.
