Life in the 1930s is the first of a new six-part series reflecting life in Britain in decades past.
This programme features high quality archive footage in black & white and colour from 1930-1939, which has been sourced from public archives and private collections.
The emphasis is not major public events that made cinema newsreels, but an informative look-back at everyday life in a bygone era very different from today.
It's not until we look back that we realise the dramatic changes which have occurred over the decades.
These include the development of the family car and air travel, to celebrations of George VI's coronation and the threat of war.
