Mrs. LESLIE MENZIES: 'Renovating Old Furniture'


We have produced a Style Guide to help editors follow a standard format when editing a listing. If you are unsure how best to edit this programme please take a moment to read it.
WITH what a sinking of the heart does the householder of moderate means regard the armchair whose springs have finally burst into open view; the table whose shaky leg has become definitely unsafe ; the sofa whose upholstery has finally passed from being vaguely shabby to being unfit to be seen. Such repairs run away with a good deal more money than they seem to be worth, for they are an unsatisfactory and ungrateful form of expense. But the skilful can save a great deal of money by knowing how to do the job themselves, and in her talk this morning Mrs. Menzies will give some practical advice on how to set about tasks of this economical and not uninteresting kind.
(Daventry only)

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.

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.
