Holiday 73


We have produced a Style Guide to help editors follow a standard format when editing a listing. If you are unsure how best to edit this programme please take a moment to read it.
with Cliff Michelmore
A series of programmes reporting the facts and figures of holidays at home and abroad to help you choose your next holiday.
Seychelles: The travel brochures have promoted these Indian Ocean islands as the ' paradise ' holiday destination - superb coral beaches, glittering clear seas and magnificent climate. But does the reality match up to those glossy adjectives? Are the unspoiled Seychelles likely to remain that way now that the planeloads of tourists are jetting in? Greek Tavernas: The latest angle on Greek island holidays is to stay in simple village taverns, mixing with the locals. It's a great return to basics, this Grecian ' Rent-a-pub.' But is simplicity a disguise for shoddiness and low standards? And can you truly become part of a village community in so short a time?
From the studio, the latest news, people and opinion from the world of travel.

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.
