: Holiday

Introduced by Cliff Michelmore
The programme's theme this week is holidays on the move - the kind of holidays that are increasingly tempting people to forsake the popular beach resorts and take themselves off the beaten tourist track and explore parts of a country that visitors normally overlook. John Carter drives inland from Spain's Costa del Sol, into the small hill towns and stately cities of Andalucia - a ' freewheeler ' holiday package which ties a scheduled flight to a considerably subsidised hire-car and sets you free to discover the Spain that lies behind the Costas
. Joan Bakewell journeys along the Caledonian Canal which links the lochs of the Great Glen. Passing some of Britain's most spectacular scenery, this is a ' cruise ' that combines both narrow and broad waters, including the 23-mile long Loch Ness.
Travel experts in the studio add their information to the film reports, and Norma Shepherd occupies our consumer desk.

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.
