: British Style Genius

4/5. By Royal Appointment - the Country Look
Obsessed by the weather as we are, it is perhaps no surprise that the nearest the British come to a national costume consists of items designed to repel the wind and rain. With caps duly doffed to Burberry and Barbour, tonight's show explores the enduring appeal of the "country look", doggedly espoused by the Queen, and now being elaborated upon by designers including Doice & Gabbana, Christopher Bailey and Luella Bartley. Director Lucie Donahue : Series producer William Naylor
Savile Row is at 11.20 pm Any episode, after it has first been broadcast, is available for the duration of the entire series at [web address removed]

9.00pm BBC2 British Style Genius has failed to find much of an audience, though this could be due to BBC2 viewers losing the will
to live after the dismal Twiggy's Frock Exchange that preceded it.
But in its own way Style Genius is a bit of a gem, with some surprising guest stars. In tonight's episode, focused on dressing for the British countryside, a relaxed Eric Clapton proclaims his love of tweed jackets while sitting amid the racks of his favourite gentlemen's outfitters.
We watch the designers at Barbour, Aquascutum and Burberry at work, and learn of the origins of the latter's classic "trench" coat, beloved of First World War officers (a connection I'd never made before) and Hollywood stars (Humphrey Bogart.Cary Grant).
But the Queen is the true star, as all and sundry proclaim her enduring status as the headscarfed icon of the country look. AG

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.
