Turn Back Time – The High Street: The Sixties Ep 5/6

The milk bar makes an appearance on the high street of the Sixties
The milk bar makes an appearance on the high street of the Sixties

A group of modern shopkeepers and their families have set up shop in a 21st-century town and are trading their way through 100 years of history. Propelling forward through time once again, Shepton Mallet sees its high street swing back to the Sixties.

Americana, self-service and teenagers hit the high street for the first time, and the families step into a radically new era of shopping and selling, as every shop is completely transformed. The Sixties brought mass production of bread, meat and clothing which means each of the families have to adapt to yet another upheaval to their businesses.

The bakers find themselves running a milk bar, producing milkshakes and burgers instead of homemade bread, while the dressmaker changes careers altogether, swapping stitches and seams for bouffants and beehives as she gets to grips with running a hair salon.

The butchers are now selling hardware and they are in direct competition with the grocers, whose shop has turned into a self-service paradise, conveying a more modern shopping experience to the town's customers.

As the shopkeepers struggle with the changes in their trades, the town's residents see first-hand why Britain turned its back on traditional shops and embraced the supermarket. By the end of the week, history dictates that for some of its traders it is time to leave the high street, and customers realise just exactly what they are losing.

As always, the Turn Back Time Chamber of Commerce – headed up by greengrocer and Masterchef judge Gregg Wallace – are on hand to keep a watchful eye on the shopkeepers, making sure that they stick to the rules, regulations and technology of the day.

Imagine – The Weird World Of Eadweard Muybridge

Tuesday 30 November
10.35-11.35pm BBC ONE
Alan Yentob glimpses into the life of photographer, inventor and showman Eadweard Muybridge
Alan Yentob glimpses into the life of photographer, inventor and showman Eadweard Muybridge

Alan Yentob presents this Imagine film on the strange life and amazing achievements of one of the most enigmatic and intriguing figures in the history of photography and motion pictures. Brilliant photographer, inventor and showman Eadweard Muybridge pioneered the creation of photographic techniques that prefigured modern cinema and the digital age.

Arriving in the United States from England in 1852, aged 20, Muybridge reinvented himself as a photographer and captured the majesty and grandeur of the American West. His pictures brought him success – but soon, fame would give way to notoriety. On 19 October 1874, The San Francisco Examiner reported that Muybridge had been arrested after shooting his wife's lover dead. The subsequent trial was a sensation – as was the verdict: ignoring the direction of the judge, the jury acquitted Muybridge on the grounds of "justifiable homicide".

Today, Muybridge is celebrated for his remarkable contribution to the development of photography. Using a high-speed shutter, he managed to capture the gait of a galloping horse, proving once and for all that at one point, all four of the horse's hooves were off the ground. He went on to make thousands of eerily beautiful sequential images of athletes and elephants, women throwing water or dancing, muscled wrestlers, flying eagles and even himself, naked. Later, his most striking images were projected to astounded audiences all over the world.

Coinciding with a major exhibition of Muybridge's works at Tate Britain, Alan examines the life and remarkable career of a British inventor whose resourcefulness and brilliance helped to create one of the great art forms of the 20th century. Alan travels to California, where Muybridge lived and produced some of his most important work, and speaks to film-makers who have been inspired by this pioneering figure in the history of the moving image.

Alan Titchmarsh's Garden Secrets – 20th Century Ep 4/4

High Definition programme
Tuesday 30 November
8.00-9.00pm BBC TWO and BBC HD

The gardens at Sissinghurst in Kent are world renowned – and with good reason. To Alan Titchmarsh they are the most influential gardens of the century, providing a wealth of tips for any garden.

He says: "Sissinghurst is the most important garden of the modern age, the first to show us how gardens could reflect our personalities and enhance our lives. The use of colour, texture and mood is beyond compare."

The gardens are the work of Harold Nicholson and Vita Sackville-West, two passionate gardeners who took this grand estate and made it intimate and warm, an extension of their particular characters. They turned it into a series of outdoor "rooms", each of which was used for eating, entertaining and reflecting. Each room had its own style and mood. Alan demonstrates how this can be achieved with a novel design for an outdoor eating area.

Vita also introduced ground-breaking colour schemes, including single-colour borders. Alan shows how she created these, using different colours in one bed to create a single hue, including a beautiful white garden.

Vita and Harold also created one of the first semi-wild gardens, the nuttery – a predecessor of the perma-culture wild gardens. Alan explains how to introduce these ideas into your own garden, creating a little edible patch.

Alan Titchmarsh's Garden Secrets is simulcast on the award-winning BBC HD channel – the BBC's High Definition channel available through Freesat channel 109, Freeview channel 54, Sky channel 169 and Virgin Media channel 187.
