  1. Well, I can’t see it because it’s on C4 and I don’t live in England at the moment. Regarding the photo of the kitchen though, we had one like that until about 1981! And even after that it didn’t change much, just the addition of a bigger fridge and new cupboard handles.


    1. Dear Marc,

      Thank you so much for your comment, sorry you aren’t able to view C4’s ‘The House The 50s Built’ in the country where you live. I was interested to read that you still have a 1950s kitchen, albeit with a few modifications. Owning a 1950s kitchen is now highly desirable, very much on-trend.

      Best wishes.
