Rough Guide to the World: The Bahamas


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.
Continuing the new seven-part series for independent travellers.
This week, Magenta DeVine and Simon O'Brien go to the Caribbean islands of the Bahamas. In Nassau, they visit the casinos catering to the 2.5 million tourists who arrive every year by cruise liner. While Simon finds out why it is illegal for Bahamians to gamble, Magenta discovers "the most powerful aphrodisiac in the world" and meets men who have five girlfriends at once.
This liberal attitude to sex has its limits, they discover - young gay people mostly leave for the US, whose culture dominates the islands. And on idyllic Harbour Island they check out naked picnics and visit Spanish Wells, a bizarre enclave of white Bahamians.

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.
