From the hairdresser to the plastic surgeon, from the advertising industry moguls to the cosmetic counter sales staff, the beauty industry makes millions of pounds by convincing the average woman she must constantly seek personal perfection and perpetual youth. In this lighthearted documentary, two such 'average' women try to discover the origins of the modern view that wrinkles, double chins, hairy armpits, fat tummies and small breasts are unattractive. With Naomi
Woolf, author of last year's controversial bestseller, The Beauty Myth, and beauty historian Professor Arthur
Marwick. See panel below. Director Kathy O'Neil Producer Jon Blair

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
