A look at the era that saw the biggest lifestyle changes of all - the 1990s and 2000s.

Reinvention was the key in the decades which saw the biggest lifestyle changes of all to the home, and the rise of makeover television - the 1990s and 2000s.

Reinvention is the key as the series concludes with the era that saw the biggest lifestyle changes of all to the home - the 1990s and 2000s. BBC Two was making over homes by chucking out the chintz, turning gardens into outside rooms and kitchens into pukka Jamie Oliver zones. But it didn't stop there. Soon there was a craze for decluttering and minimal living linked to the crazed flipping of homes in the mortgage-mad Noughties. Inevitably, a slew of programmes about buying and selling property, homes in the country and living abroad followed.

The stars of this new era of makeover television, including Laurence Llewellyn-Bowen, Diarmuid Gavin and Charlie Dimmock, are all on hand to try and explain how this bewilderingly fast reinvention of the very idea of home happened - and why it couldn't last.

Narrated by Mel Giedroyc.

The series starts with the biggest lifestyle revolution of them all, the 1960s.

The series which trawls the archives to see how BBC Two has been a guide to lifestyle trends begins with maybe the biggest lifestyle revolution of them all - the 1960s.

From Fanny Cradock's petits fours to Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen's boudoirs, BBC Two has for the last 50 years been a guide to shifting lifestyle trends in contemporary Britain. In its mission to keep us informed, educated and entertained in all things domestic, the channel has gone mad for makeovers, finessed our food and planted ideas in our back gardens.

This series takes a nostalgic and amusing trawl through the archives to see how BBC Two fared as tastemaker to the nation. And, piquantly narrated by Bake Off's Mel Giedroyc, it begins with the biggest lifestyle revolution of them all, the 1960s, when the shock and the schlock of the new marched hand in brightly coloured hand.

Featuring Alan Titchmarsh, Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen, Antony Worrall Thompson and Esther Rantzen.

A look back at the 1980s, when more money was spent on homes than ever before.

In the 1980s, more money was spent on homes than ever before, and at the heart of this was a changing role for women.

The series tracking 50 years of lifestyle and homemaking programmes on BBC Two heads into the 1980s. This was the decade when more people would own their homes, when more money was spent on them and more time in them than ever before.

And at the heart of this was a changing role for women, who were joining the workforce in greater numbers, throwing off the shackles of being traditional housewives. It was a time of dizzying domestic change: Ken Hom caused a culinary revolution through his time-saving wok; Jilly Goolden got us drinking wine around the kitchen table; and Keith Floyd took the drudgery out of cooking by making it into entertainment - and as a result got men at the stove for the first time. Not for nothing was no-nonsense dog trainer Barbara Woodhouse, who brought men and dogs alike to heel, one of the icons of the decade.

Narrated by Bake Off's very own no-nonsense Mel Giedroyc.

Looking back at the 1970s, a world of dodgy fashion and stodgy food.

Mel Giedroyc narrates as The Seventies trawls the archives to show how BBC Two has been a guide to lifestyle trends.

Keeping track of lifestyle trends in the decade that style forgot was one of BBC Two's bigger challenges, as the deliciously arch narration of Bake Off's Mel Giedroyc reminds us in this amusing romp through the channel's archive.

This, after all, was an era of dodgy fashion, stodgy food and bodged politics that had us running to escape into a world of stripped pine, country kitchens and Laura Ashley. But the programme shows that the 1970s also resemble our own times - from house price inflation and soaring energy costs through to worries about the threat to 'real' food and environmental sustainability.
