Household Talk: Mrs. Leslie Menzies: Furnishing a Small Flat: I


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.
The face of England is still covered with those solid, spacious houses that our ancestors built themselves - too solid to fall down, but too spacious for their descendants to afford. This is the ago of the flat, and a floor space that in the Victorian age would have been thought hardly adequate for a drawing room, and into which the Elizabethans would not have squeezed a bedroom, now suffices for all the needs of many a family entitled to be styled well-to-do. Even if the sort of flat that was so amusingly pictured on the 'Both Sides of the Microphone' page last week is not yet universal, congestion is the rule, and compactness and economy of space are the chief essentials in modern furniture. In this series of talks Mrs. Menzies will describe various schemes for furnishing and also decorating a small flat at a very reasonable cost.


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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
