The first of two documentaries exploring the science and psychology of shopping.
Buying It. Shopping has become a national pastime, one of our favourite leisure activities, and what we buy and own is now a lifestyle barometer.

But there's a health warning - shopping can be dangerously addictive and, even if you hate the activity, the show reveals that it can still be bad for you. Narrated by Arabella Weir.

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.
