: Made of Leather: A Parade of Fashions in Leather: Part 1

Centuries ago, even as far back as the time of the ancient Egyptians, animal hides and skins were dressed for leather. Today, of course, leather is used very much more extensively, and viewers will see several interesting examples. The programme will open with a 'shot' of an old-time cobbler, a typical craftsman of a past age, and then models will show the influence of leather on modern fashions. In this afternoon's programme there will be a display of golf, flying, and motoring suits, and in the evening programme at 9.0 bags and hats, all made of leather, will be shown.

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
