: Holiday 71

with Cliff Michelmore
A series of programmes to help you choose your next holiday.

Lido di Jesolo
A mixture of sun, sand, sea, concrete hotels, and three meals a day - no fuss, no bother. A report on this Adriatic coast resort, tailor-made for that 'all-inclusive' package deal. Critics claim that this style of holiday doesn't give the traveller the true experience of being abroad. Do low prices compensate for this? And do package-deal travellers care anyway?

Rent-an-Irish Cottage
Thatched roofs and central heating are combined in this away-from-it-all package to a west coast village. But can the stranger who hires his holiday home for two weeks really fit into the local way of life?

: Your Witness: That Women should have a New Deal

A special television debate on the status of women in Britain
That Women should have a New Deal

Ludovic Kennedy will call Nemone Lethbridge, writer and former barrister, to prove this proposition and Bruce Campbell, QC, a former MP to disprove it.

The argument will attempt to decide whether the women of Britain receive the rough end of the stick from a society dominated by men, or whether the ladies are getting the best of both the worlds of freedom and of chivalrous protection.

To help argue their cases Nemone Lethbridge and Bruce Campbell may call any witnesses they choose, and may use as exhibits any film from the BBC archives. The issue will be debated in front of a specially invited audience.
('Give me the Old Bailey any time' says Nemone: page 4)


Presenter: Ludovic Kennedy
Proposer: Nemone Lethbridge
Opposer: Bruce Campbell
Director: Alex Sayward
Producer: Michael Bukht

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
