The Travel Show Caribbean Special


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.
This edition, presented by Penny Junor , includes insider reports on three very different destinations in the Caribbean.
Plus a guide to choosing the right island for different types of holidays.
Amanda Redman , recently seen in the BBC1 detective drama Beck, heads for Puerto Rico, which has been described as "rather like Cuba, but the plumbing works". From the capital San Juan she travels to the island's interior, checkingoutthe local cultural offerings.
Simon Calder , travel editor of The
Independent, discovers that even in the increasingly popular Caribbean it is still possible to get away from it all, on lesser-known islands such as Dominica.
He finds that tropical rainforest treks or hidden inns and hotels offer an alternative to lying on the beach.
And, on his first trip to the islands, comedian Arthur Smith flies to Antigua which, it is claimed, has 365 beaches.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
