' Design in Modern Life'—III


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 Living-Room '
A Discussion between Mr. EDWARD HALLIDAY and Mr. GORDON RUSSELL
Mr. Edward Halliday , decorative painter and portrait painter, questions Mr. Gordon Russell on the principles of good design in the equipment of the modern living-room. Mr. Halliday has had considerable success in practical interior decoration, while Mr. Gordon Russell is head of a leading firm of modern furniture-makers ; incidentally, he has been responsible for the design of a commercial radio receiver that successfully reconciles the demands of good taste and mass-production. The efforts of our artists and designers to produce a rational distinctive style of decoration and furnishing deserve the closer inspection of all who live in the homes of today; listeners will find this and succeeding discussions full of illuminating and practical suggestions.

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.
