Mr. HOLT MARVELL: Holidays Abroad : France-I, Southern France '


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.
rpHREE talks on Italy and two on Spain
A have given listeners a very good idea of the advantages of spending a holiday in Granada or Seville, San Remo or Perugia, Venice or Capri. Now, France is to be similarly dealt with, and, as in Csesar's time (any schoolboy can tell you), all Gaul was divided into three parts, so all France will be divided into three talks. This afternoon Mr. Holt Marvell , the novelist, will describe that sunbathed Paradise where the Mediterranean laps the rocks of the Cote d'Azur, a region in which he has lived for many year?. He will deal not so much with such crowded resorts as Monte Carlo and Cannes as with the lovely little villages that lie off the petrol-laden track.

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.
