' Holidays at Home and Abroad '-XI, Mr. COMPTON MACKENZIE : 'A Holiday in the Channel Isles '


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.
FROM his island of Jethou, Mr. Compton Mackenzie has, as it were, as good a view of the Channel Islands as a man might have. Fortunate, indeed, he is, to be able to enjoy these happy islands from the inside instead of, as with us poor occasional holiday-makers, from the outside. Who has not wished, when spring first comes, to be free to go where those fields are full of flowers and where already it is warm ? But it is the people who live in the Channel Islands of whom, also, Mr. Mackenzie will be able to tell us. And no one who has heard any of his broadcast talks will need reminding of the charm with which, by virtue of his retentive memory and 'sensitive style, he can invest his words over the microphone.

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.
