Afternoon Play: Summer of Love at theBuena Vista, Margate


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.
By Chris Thompson. it's 1967 and the whole world seems to be going to California in search of sunshine, music and love-ins. But not Col. He is going to the Buena Vista Hotel in Margate, where he and his mate Pete have landed summerjobs. While Pete has no problem attracting the girls, Col takes a more sensitive approach. Then the unusual wedding anniversary celebration of the hotel's German chef changes the course of the summer.

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.
