After World War II, there was a 'Baby Boom' creating the need for more housing. Most people resorted to homes outside the cities like suburbs because there it was cheaper. These places were called "Suburbia". Every community in the suburbs were like it's own little town. They all had schools, churches and parks.

Improved roads and railway transport became the new way of travel as more and more people commuted. How was Suburban Family life reinforced on TV? What did critics think about Suburbia?
