: Holiday

Introduced by Cliff Michelmore
The colourful and bustling community of Hong Kong is now much easier to reach since the cost of air fares has been dramatically reduced. It's a great place in which to do your duty free holiday shopping, but what else can the colony offer its visitors? CLIFF MICHEL MORE reports. The canals and rivers of France are attracting more and more British holidaymakers. Brittany is especially popular for such holidays, as John Carter discovers. Frank and Nesta Bough continue their Italian journey, travelling from Asolo in the Veneto.

Prisoners of Conscience
Thousands of people are in jail in dozens of countries because they hold religious and political beliefs, opinions or ideas not approved of by the ' authorities '.
The imprisonment of these ' prisoners of conscience' is in violation of the United Nations Declaration of Human Rights.
This film tells the story of two men, Gustavo Westerkamp , held in Argentina for five years without trial, and Danylo Shumuk , who has been in jail in the USSR for over 35 years.
It also shows the work of people fighting for the release of these two - and of the thousands of other individuals and groups who, under the umbrella of Amnesty International, which this year celebrates its 20th anniversary, devote their spare time to working for the freedom of people they have never met. Written and presented by Vanya Kewley

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
