7.45* Thought for the Day
Cooking for One or Two
My daughter's living in a bed-sitter, and only has a gas-ring to cook on; have you any suggestions for widening the range of foods she cooks? From what she tells me, she fries everything. My husband and I are pensioners, and we find shopping a bit of a problem. Do you think it would be worth the expense of buying a freezer? I live alone and I'm out at work all day - so I don't need to keep large stocks of food but I find it difficult to buy small quantities. Are manufacturers doing anything about this? Put your questions to two cookery experts, Mary Berry and Louise Davies. Sue MacGregor is in the Chair

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.
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.
