Conceived in Sweden, born in 1946, the Light Programme's long-running request show catered to the needs of the women at home - and in the age of austerity those needs were great.
With the help of material from newspaper, magazine and radio archives, Russell Davies and Maureen Lipman tell the tale of those times and present recordings that were requested and played in the original programmes.

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.
