: Holiday

Introduced by Cliff Michelmore
Generations of British travellers have regarded a cruise along the Nile as the best way of seeing the tombs and temples of ancient Egypt. John Carter took ship at Luxor for the journey to Aswan to find out how cruising styles have changed - how the ' Agatha Christie ' image has been affected by the introduction of a fleet of new floating hotels, designed to replace the romantic old paddle-steamers.
How to get best value for money is the question when faced with a spread of brochures offering broadly the same kind of holiday. Weekend breaks in Britain come in many forms, but Anne Grcgg hitched on to the value-for-money aspect when she sampled an off-season deal in Dover. For it includes a free trip to Boulogne, giving a chance to compare shopping values on both sides of the Channel.
Derek Cooper continues his journey through
Travellers' Britain this week heading from seaside Scarborough to the medieval splendours of York.

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.
