Holiday 86


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.
Introduced by Cliff Michelmore
In these jet-powered package-tour days, have the traditional values of a luxury cruise sunk without trace?
Cliff Michelmore sailed on the Royal Viking Sky to test the claim that her voyages offer 'the luxury and elegance of an era when service was supreme'.
You could sample that style for yourself, for a Mediterranean cruise on Royal Viking Sky is one of the prizes in the RADIO TIMES Holiday competition.
What's new in New York?
The answer - to John Carter's surprise - is a couple of very old-established British customs which the Big Apple has taken to its core - bed-and-breakfast accommodation in private homes, and strong ale in a brand-new brewery.
Sue Carpenter joins the Holiday team, sampling a cycling holiday which starts and finishes in Cambridge and takes in a lot of Norfolk scenery. 'Very flat, Norfolk' - which is just as well, even with five-speed pedal power. In the studio, the latest news and comment.

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.
