The second radio program using interviews recorded as part of the Australian Generations Oral History Project aired on Hindsight on ABC Radio National on Sunday 23 March 2014.

This feature goes inside that personal space we call home and opens the door on Australian houses and homes to discover the way we’ve lived domestically over the past eighty years.

In this program we hear memories from across the generations, alongside the views of historians, an economic sociologist and an urban policy thinker.
