: Holiday

Introduced by Cliff Michelmore
As inevitable as brand-new diaries and resolute resolutions, the Holiday programme returns with the start of another year. And this series, more than ever before, will bear in mind the current economic climate, inflation at home and abroad and a host of problems that beset the holidaymaker.
Travel experts in the studio will supplement the information in our film reports, adding their own suggestions and guiding viewers towards the best of the bargains. Norma Shepherd joins the team to pass on the results of her research into aspects of travel and holidays - research which most people simply don't have time to do for themselves.
In this first programme, remembering the long hot. summer, we take a fresh look at two similar resorts, one at home and the other abroad; not to compare one against the other, more to show just what each has to offer. Kieran Prendiville reports from Salcombe and Joan Bakewell from
Puerto Soller, Majorca.

A series in 12 episodes
Tim Woodward , Anne Kristen John Hallam , Nicholas Jones

When the Great War began, flying was the dangerous hobby of wealthy sportsmen, and the General Staff thought the 'flying machines' entirely useless as weapons of war. Many young men disagreed - those who saw their opportunity of learning to fly.
In February 1915, commissioned officers and sons of ' the gentry' are finding it hard enough to be accepted for training as pilots in the Royal Flying Corps. So what possible chance has young Alan Farmer , the son of a Sussex blacksmith?

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
