: 'THE AMATEUR HANDYMAN'

' Choosing your Tools'
W P Matthew
This is the first of six practical talks.
They are planned for the small householder who is responsible for his own repairs and decorations but cannot afford to call in professional assistance every time a door-handle comes off or his wife wants some extra shelves in the pantry.
Each talk will be given by W. P. Matthew , who is a builder by trade, with considerable experience of the needs and problems of the householder in question. In his opening broadcast today he will describe the tools that every amateur handyman should aim at acquiring.deal with In the later talks he will deal with all kinds of jobs about the house, from modest repairs to such ambitious schemes as the modernising of an old-fashioned room. The man of the house who listens to these talks will have no excuse for not taking a hand on a pretty big scale in the annual spring-cleaning.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
