6-' When Buying Bedding and Household Linen'
A discussion on everyday shopping points for ordinary people between
Margot Smith (for the housewife) and R. B. Driver (household linen buyer for an important London Store)
A departmental buyer of one of the great London stores, with experience that has given him a detailed knowledge of the demand from different parts of the country, is to join Margot Smith in the shopping discussion this evening. R. B. Driver will answer a wide range of questions of practical interest to the housewife who is beginning to furnish or replenishing her stocks. He will deal with ordinary methods of judging quality and value in sheets and blankets, the best width and length for single and double beds, what to look for in buying towels and kitchen linen, and how to judge the filling of quilts and mattresses. In the course of the discussion he will be asked whether some of the most spectacular claims of advertisements and sales are reliable. His general advice will be ' Go to the trader you can trust, and don't expect impossible bargains for your money '.

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.
