2.5 Your Home and Mine
' How shall we build our House ? '
Last term Geoffrey Boumphrey talked chiefly about houses of the past, and revealed something of the long story that lies behind our own houses. This term he is going to explore all the different parts of a house and discover the different ways in which each is made.
You must not think that Mr.
Boumphrey is going to do it all. He can't possibly visit every home in the land. So he wants you to help him by keeping your eyes and ears open and by always thinking ' Why? ' If you come across anything especially interesting, he hopes that you will write to him about it, and even send him a photograph.
He hopes he is going to know more about houses, as well as about you, before the year is ended!

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.
