: Holiday 72 with Cliff Michelmore

The 18th London International Boat Show opened this week, and Holiday 72 looks particularly at holidays afloat.
Mediterranean Yacht Charter: One of the fastest growing holiday trends - charter and be the owner of a luxury yacht in the Mediterranean for a fortnight. The boats vary enormously as do the prices.
Norfolk Broads: Two hundred miles of inland waterways offering the widest possible choice of hire cruisers at the cheapest rates to be found anywhere in Britain. With hundreds of new boats being introduced each season, and water pollution reaching an absurd level, how long can this boating playground survive?
(Holiday 72 Competition: pages 14-16)

Producer: Tom Savage

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.
