: Holiday

Introduced by Cliff Michelmore
Over the years the Algarve has become a popular tourist destination. CLIFF MICHELMORE looks at some sporting holiday options at Vale do Lobo - on the golf course, and at Roger Taylor 's recently, opened tennis centre.
The South of France has long been popular with British holiday-makers, but styles there have changed and camping is now all the rage, with the result that, in high summer, the camp sites are filled to overflowing. John Carter reports on what is being done to relieve that pressure. But is it enough? Derek Cooper continues his journey around Travellers' Britain, from Hereford to the Malvern Hills.

... and how they live together. A series of seven films
'When two gay people decide that they're going to live together, they have no blueprint which can guide them.' So says Dr John Sketchley, speaking from both personal and professional experience.
In this programme, Gay Search finds out how MAK and MARY in North Cornwall and PETER and VICTOR in suburban Surrey, have tried to overcome this lack of blueprint. How hard was it for them to establish stable relationships? And how far have they been accepted by friends and neighbours as couples much like any others?

The Changing Face of Venus Venus has always been a planet of surprises, and very recently the Pioneer spacecraft orbiting the planet have provided some more. There is evidence of current active volcanoes, very similar to those on Earth, and it seems that in the distant past (when the Sun was cooler than at present) Venus may have sustained life, only for it to be destroyed as the Sun grew hotter, changing the ' Planet of Love' into an inferno.
Patrick Moore discusses how our knowledge of Venus has changed in view of these exciting new discoveries.

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.
