The Holiday Programme


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.
with Cliff Michelmore, John Carter and Anne Gregg

The best travel show on television is back with a new series, and off to a supersonic start, flying Concorde to New York. John Carter reports on a very special round-the-world tour - and there's an opportunity to win that self-same holiday, for two people in a Radio Times/Holiday competition. (Details on page 92)
The Mediterranean island of Ibiza is Anne Gregg's assignment. She looks at the various attractions of the island, and at the 'nuts and bolts' of a package holiday there - the kind of holiday taken by millions.
Within this new series there are two 'mini series', one of which takes a look at various parts of Britain as seen through the eyes of locally-based reporters. For the first of those films Jane Franchi travels around Tayside in Scotland.
In the studio, news and comment on the 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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
