This long-running afternoon programme was designed to help housewives improve their domestic skills such as cookery and needlework, although other items covered included shopping, deportment and even puppy training. Home-improvement tips from Barry Bucknell proved so popular that he gained his own series, Do It Yourself, in 1957. Presented by Joan Gilbert.
