: Panorama: Playground of the Western World

TV's top reporters close in on the most interesting topics of the day
Robin Day, Michael Charlton, Nicholas Harman, Alan Hart, Richard Kershaw, Robert MacNeil, Julian Pettifer

"The grand object of travel," said Dr Johnson 200 years ago, "is to see the shores of the Mediterranean." It's even truer today. Every year five million Britons leave their inhibitions and our damp climate behind, and head for those fabled shores. Most go for the sun - for a golden tan that will draw so many admiring glances back at the office. But there are other attractions: that holiday romance with a handsome Spanish waiter, rum at 50 pence a bottle, or simply something different - a way of life with a style all of its own. But there's the rub. As the Mediterranean has grown more popular its special character has changed.
Already in some resorts it's hard to tell if you're in Spain, Italy or even Florida. And it's not too fanciful to imagine the entire coastline soon becoming one gigantic sprawl of tower blocks. Perhaps it doesn't matter. Homer's wine-dark sea has seen so many empires come and go, it will certainly take this latest invasion in its stride.
In tonight's Panorama Julian Pettifer reports on how this ancient sea is changing.

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.

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.
