Setting Up Home
Whether you are a first-time buyer or a habitual mover, there are always questions to be answered. First, what are the prospects of a mortgage at present? For buyers: do you need a separate survev or will the one the building society does suffice? Should you try to buy privately? Do you really need a solicitor? And the seller: should you save fees by doing your own selling? There's a crack in one of the walls - should you cover it up? Should you redecorate before selling? And no doubt you have troubles of your own.
John Thomas , FRICS, who is an estate agent and chartered surveyor, is in the studio to answer your questions.
Sue MacGregor is in the chair

In June 1940 France signed an armistice with Nazi Germany. The northern half of France was to be occupied by German troops, and the French armed forces were to be demobilised. Marshal Petain, the 84-year-old victor of Verdun, had formed a government, and the following month he and his ministers moved into the genteel spa town of Vichy, in the unoccupied southern zone.
Roderick Kedward has been to Vichy and spoken to surviving members of Petain's government. He traces the 'myth' of Petain back to the Marshal's first broadcast, 40 years ago today.
In the first of two programmes, French men and women talk of the immensity of the defeat, the hostility to Britain. and the controversial nature of Petainism within France.

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.
