Celebrate 50 Years of Asian Programming

Guests discuss how to carry out domestic essentials.

The 10th of October, 1965 saw the BBC broadcast its first programming especially for the UK's newest inhabitants from South Asia. Called 'Make Yourself at Home' it aimed to help the community to assimilate into British life with language lessons and handy household tips including on how to turn a switch on. From there the strand not only reflected the lives of immigrants in the 60's, but then charted the growing confidence of a community which now calls itself British-Asian.
