The lives behind six legendary names - told by their biographers. 2: Thomas Cook and his Son
Written and presented by the distinguished poet, journalist and writer John Pudney
World travel is easy-we take it for granted. One hundred and fifty years ago travel for most people didn't exist - until this Victorian pioneer and businessman had the vision, in a century just awakening to its possibilities, to make travel possible for everyone. Joined by his son - with whom he had a stormy relationship - he began in the 19th century what is familiar to us in this century as the Package Holiday.
JOHN PUDNEY , himself a great traveller, is especially drawn by the unexpected motives and early influences in Cook's life which led that Victorian opportunist to lay the foundations of modern tourism.

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.
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.
