Channel 4 tonight: The House The 50s Built
Should you be one of our UK readers, there's an interesting show on tonight which looks well worth catching or recording - The House The 50s Built.
Host Brendan Walker learns from practical, hands-on experience what it took to bring about the 50s revolution by reconstructing a house. Each programme focuses on a room and fast-forwards it through the 1950s, showcasing how progress in the home triggered a wave of social change.
The programme hears from people who lived through the decade, including Maureen Lipman and Fay Weldon, as well as designers such as Wayne and Gerardine Hemingway, and also Kevin McCloud.
