'A NATION OF SHOPPERS'

Synopsis

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.
Shopping Today
Laurence Neal
In England at present there is one shop to about every eighty people. This evening, in the second talk in this new series, Laurence Neal is to discuss the extraordinarily varied types of shops there are - street market, small independent shop, speciality shop, department store, multiple shop, fixed price store, factory-to-consumer shop, co-operative movement, club trading, mail orders, door-to-door selling. Why are there so many different ways of selling ? What has each of these types to offer that the others haven't? Is the variety too great to be efficient ?

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.
