The House the '50s Built
Celebrating the science behind the inventions and innovations that transformed the way we lived and catapulted an exhausted, post-war country into the modernity of 1950s Britain. Professor Brendan Walker sets out to discover the ingenuity and life-changing technology behind the inventions that took drab post-war Britain and launched it into a Technicolor-drenched world of the future.
This episode focuses on the kitchen, where free-standing cupboards, mangles and larders were replaced by fitted units, twin-tubs and refrigerators - and the all-important food processor.
