: MAKE IT MY PLACE

Ten leading designers are invited to solve ten domestic design problems for families who want to do some of the work themselves
2: A Dining-Room in Rainham, Essex
Designer, KENNETH PARTRIDGE Drawings, DON KIDMAN Do-It-Yourself, ROY DAY
Presenter, PETER GLYNN SMITH Producer, SHEILA INNES
BBC film
Accompanying pamphlet: see page 10 ' A place to live in that is well-planned, attractive, easy to keep clean, economic to run; a place that meets all our requirements.' A tall order, but something that most of us would like and that a good designer can achieve.
Quite ordinary accommodation was chosen on purpose. Some of the rooms for treatment were as little as nine feet square. Big enough for everyday living but not very large when one has to accommodate a film unit of ten people, two cameras, lighting equipment, the family, and the designer, and still try to preserve the spontaneity of the original meeting.
In tonight's programme Roy Day builds a concealed hatch which Kenneth Partridge designed as part of a dining-room scheme for Brian and Beverly Willson , who live in Rainham, Essex.

: A TOUCH OF VENUS

A series of short plays by famous authors featuring distinguished English and Continental actresses
ELISABETH BERGNER in The Jewish Wife by BERTOLT BRECHT translated by Eric RUSSELL BENTLET with Ralph Michael
Designer, David Jones
Producer, HAL BURTON
In Berlin in September 1935 Ruth Ackermann , the Jewish wife of an eminent Aryan doctor, secretly decides to leave Germany for the sake of her husband's future. She rehearses her parting speech to him; but when they meet, what can they say to each other?
Elisabeth Bergner has been living in England for the past fifteen years, but most of her recent performances have been in Germany. In 1963 she was the first actress to receive the Schiller Prize—an award for an outstanding contribution to the arts. Towards the end of last year she appeared in The Mad Woman of Chaillot at Oxford and Guildford, and her per. formance was greatly acclaimed.

Ninotchka soon finds out that he is not only shrewd but also very charming ...

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.
