The Home That 2 Built
A look at perhaps the biggest lifestyle revolution of them all, the 60s, when the shock and the schlock of the new marched hand in brightly coloured hand.
Look back on an era of dodgy fashion, stodgy food and bodged politics that had people running to escape into a world of stripped pine, country kitchens and Laura Ashley. Certain aspects of the 1970s resonate today, from house price inflation and soaring energy costs through to worries about the threat to `real' food and environmental sustainability.
A look back at a decade when more people would own their homes, and more money was spent on them and more time in them than ever before. And at the heart of this was a changing role for women, who were joining the workforce in greater numbers.
A look back at the 1990s and 2000s, when BBC Two was making over homes by chucking out the chintz, turning gardens into outside rooms and kitchens into pukka Jamie Oliver zones. Soon there was a craze for decluttering and minimal living linked to the crazed flipping of homes in the mortgage-mad Noughties.
