The ABC National Australian Television Channel have produced at 5 part series entitled “For better or worse” examining the different aspects that make up a life long successful, happy marriage. The series comprises 5 half hour episodes screening on consecutive Sunday’s at prime time, 6:30pm. The first episode goes to air on Sunday 20th September. The series will be aired on the ABC’s regular weekly program titled “Compass” which produces intelligent documentaries for the thoughtful person.
