: Holiday

Introduced by Cliff Michelmore Villa versus Hotel
The well-publicised problems of Spanish hotels have, in many cases, resulted in a lowering of standards and ' serve yourself' meals. Does this mean hotels are no longer value for money? Is it better to do-it-yourself totally in a villa or apartment? A special report on the alternatives, from the Costa del Sol.
Sail Training - and Life Training
A holiday that aims to ' teach young people how to live and cooperate with their fellow human beings ...' may at first sight seem well off the usual Holiday track. But one or two weeks on the Sail Training Association's ' Sir Winston Churchill' turns out to be a great deal more than social work, at sea.

: Wilderness

An Everyman Journey into the Desert This week:
The Mystery of the Beduin
Desert landscapes are magnificent, enticing and for those who venture deep into them, simply overwhelming.
It is this experience that has fascinated Western explorers and romantics of the past. Today's explorers and romantics in their thousands, scientists, adventurers, farmers and artists are rediscovering that hypnotic attraction of the wilderness. Could the deserts' unique qualities have shaped the emergence of Judaism, Christianity and Islam? And indeed could they still possess a powerful message for the modern world?
Everyman has followed the lives of desert dwellers, ancient and modern, in Arizona, Israel and the Sinai Peninsula. In tonight's programme we journey with the Beduin in search of those spiritual and physical roots that mysteriously sustain them in so uncompromising a world.

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.
