: MAKE IT MY PLACE

Ten leading designers are invited to solve ten domestic design problems for families who want to do some of the work themselves
10: A Living-Room
In Hexham, Northumberland
Designer, PETER GLYNN SMITH Drawings, DON KIDMAN Do-It-Yourself, Roy DAY
Producer, SHEILA INNES
Accompanying pamphlet: see below
Hexham is a market town about twenty miles from Newcastle, near Hadrian's Wall. In this county of rough winds and rough moors really old houses are neither uncommon nor expensive. John and Jocelyn Lamont bought a rugged stone house built in 1657. When they moved in the top floor was a flat. Now the tenants have gone they wonder how to make the most of a potentially large space. Can a room be too big for comfort? What about heating and lighting it? With such dominant architecture, what kind of furniture and fabrics look best? Can ancient and modern live happily together?
In this last programme the designer is the presenter of the series, Peter Glynn Smith , and Roy Day asks the questions.

This week:
PLANNERS versus PEOPLE
What happens when planners build houses for people who then find they don'want to live in them? And industrial estates are offered to employers who prefer to build factories elsewhere?
Some say the answer can be found at Haverhill, in West Suffolk. Twelve years ago a dying community of 3,000 country people, it's now an expanding town, population 12,000, most of it ' overspill ' from London. They live in housing estates financed by the Greater London Council. But many houses in Haverhill stand empty. Wages are below and prices (say the wives) above the national average. The planners, they say, have built not a Utopia but a ghetto of city dwellers in the Suffolk countryside.
Man Alive examines with film teams and an outside broadcast unit, the plight of Haverhill—a Pioneer Development.

A selection of musical milestones from the golden days of the silver screen
Tonight: the 1945 production of A Song to Remember starring
CORNEL WILDE, MERLE OBERON
PAUL MUNI with Nina Foch
Written for the screen and produced by Sidney Buchman
Directed by Charles Vidor
A romantic and spectacular account of the colourful life of Frederic Chopin.
This film gave Cornel Wilde his first starring part after he had played numerous small film roles. He was frequently cast in costume dramas-often as swashbuckling heroes-but since 1957 he has produced and directed all his own films. His latest movie, Beach Red, a war film, was well received by the press last year. The beautiful Merle Oberon plays the novelist George Sand , who affected swaggering male attire and thus outraged conventional circles.

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.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website, and programmes to purchase.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

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.
