The bed-sitting room often used to be a cheerless place, dingy and drab, with its gas ring, few chairs and creaky bed. Clever furniture design has changed all that, and tonight television visits the Homes and Gardens Pavilion at the South Bank Exhibition to see three outstanding examples of modern, attractive bed-sitting rooms.
A fortnightly survey of the traditional dishes for which Britain is famous.
Whitebait, the fry of the herring sprat caught off the Essex coast, has been a London delicacy for centuries. Jellied eels, cockles, winkles, and shrimps are eaten in many parts of England.

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.
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.
