Ten leading designers are invited to solve ten domestic design problems for families who want to do some of the work themselves
2: A Dining-Room in Rainham, Essex
Designer, KENNETH PARTRIDGE Drawings, DON KIDMAN Do-It-Yourself, ROY DAY
BBC film
Accompanying pamphlet: see page 10 ' A place to live in that is well-planned, attractive, easy to keep clean, economic to run; a place that meets all our requirements.' A tall order, but something that most of us would like and that a good designer can achieve.
Quite ordinary accommodation was chosen on purpose. Some of the rooms for treatment were as little as nine feet square. Big enough for everyday living but not very large when one has to accommodate a film unit of ten people, two cameras, lighting equipment, the family, and the designer, and still try to preserve the spontaneity of the original meeting.
In tonight's programme Roy Day builds a concealed hatch which Kenneth Partridge designed as part of a dining-room scheme for Brian and Beverly Willson , who live in Rainham, Essex.

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.
