: Holiday

Introduced by Cliff Michelmore
Activity holidays - in the sense of exploring and travelling, that is-seem to be wooing people away from the completely relaxed, sun-soaking pattern of past years.
Holiday this week stays on the move and samples two holidays which require a certain amount of energy as well as a willingness to move on. John Carter journeys aboard the Regina Prima on a Mediterranean cruise, calling at half-a-dozen ports in as many days. Is this style of sea-going really cruising, or is it just' bus-stop sailing' as its critics claim?
Fyfe Robertson spends a week touring the Republic of Southern Ireland, sampling an haute cuisine holiday in stylish country houses. The pace is not too hectic, though, and there's time enough to appreciate the particular gastronomic joys of each new location.
Travel experts in the studio add their information to the film reports, and Norma Shepherd occupies our consumer desk.

: The Anno Domini Interview

Colin Morris talks to distinguished parliamentarian and implacable opponent of South Africa's apartheid policies Helen Suzman , a founder of the Progressive Party, and for many years its only representative in the House of Assembly. An American newspaper once said ' there is basis for believing that as the sole voice of the vote-less, she actually represents more South Africans than all the other members of Parliament combined.'

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.
