: What Not to Wear

1/8. Fashion experts Lisa Butcher and Mica Paris meet a series of identical twins whose friends and families wish they would stop dressing alike and develop stronger identities as individuals. Unable to choose one pair to makeover. Lisa and Mica instead pick one twin from two different sets. How will the chosen two fare without their sisters by their side, and what will be the reaction of their twins when they see their siblings transformed? The results are a gripping insight into the special bond between twins.

The Inside Story: page 100

The Inside Story: "It's not just a makeover, it's much deeper than that," says Mica Paris, who co-presents the new series of What Not To Wear (8.00pm BBC1). "We become immersed in the lives of these people. We're working with them and hanging out together for three or four months. You see less than an hour of it. We spend an hour-and-a-half talking to people individually on the therapy couch alone - you probably only see one minute of that in the show. It can only work when it's done in depth. You can't fake that sort of transformation. The clothes are just the cherry on the cake."

Lifestyle: What Not to Wear 8.00pm BBC1
Mica Paris and Lisa Butcher dip their well-pedicured toes into an area that's usually the province of someone like Professor Robert Winston: identical twins. After sifting through countless female twins, all of whom are dressed in the same boring, bland way as their sister (or have "been tauped" as Lisa puts it), they pick one woman from two sets of twins to make over.
It's a dangerous idea to separate siblings that are so close they finish each other's sentences (although one suspects their flinty ITV1 counterparts, Trinny and Susannah, would have no qualms about it) and, for a while, the experiment looks likely to go the way of the typical British woman's figure-pear-shaped. Of course, both the Eliza Doolittles end up looking like My Fair Ladies (and even the twins left behind get a bit of a makeover), which is remarkable considering some of the ghastly outfits Mica and Lisa sport.

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.

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.
