Hollywood in the Sixties Mr Hobbs Takes a Vacation


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.
Tonight's film in this new season of outstanding films of the past 10 years stars James Stewart
Maureen O'Hara with Fabian, John Saxon
Two generations of stars are featured in this 1962 production from 20th Century-Fox. James Stewart plays the hapless Mr Hobbs in fine laconic style - a banker who discovers the perils of a family vacation by the seaside in a broken-down villa with a large and fractious family. It turns out to be a holiday that no one will ever forget!
Produced by JERRY WALD Directed by HENRY KOSTER

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.
