A series of ten programmes
Introduced by Cliff Michelmore
The brochures, the ads, the commercials are already coming in thick and fast, as Holiday returns with ideas and advice to help you make your holiday choice this year.
Of all the Caribbean islands, Barbados has maintained its popularity over the years, but have world-wide reductions in air fares brought this traditionally higher-priced winter sunshine area within the reach of more modest budgets? Anne Gregg goes self-catering to find out.
CLIFF MICHELMORE takes a short break' in Dublin. Since Ireland joined the Common Market the Irish capital has become a truly European city, offering a degree of sophistication that will surprise those who still see the Irish in terms of long-irrelevant cliches. A city with style, and more besides.
In the studio the latest news on the travel and holiday scene.

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.
