Sun and fun, dads and lads, knobbly knees, bingo, beer and punch-and Judy (plus an event delightfully described as ' a leg competition for ladies' in the Blinking Owl Bar). It's all part of the entertainment on offer to guests at that famous holiday camp at Clacton. In the last seaside rendezvous of the present series, Russell surfaces by the Olympic-size swimming-pool to join the campers in a live half-hour of slap and tickle. If wet, in the Hawaiian Ballroom.

It began as a craze for listening to sounds on the ' ether' with a ' cat's whisker '. From 1922 there was something called ' broadcasting ' which entered millions of homes through an invention called the ' wireless '. Through the 1930s and 40s its popularity as a source of entertainment soared. The radio (as it was now called) became an essential part of Britain's cultural and daily life.
The programme looks at radio in the years from the arrival of the British Broadcasting Company in 1922 to the Coronation in 1953: Those Radio Times when the wireless and its stars reigned supreme in the hearts of millions. with John Snagge.

Wordsworth lamented the coming of steam locomotion to the LaKe District he loved. The trains remain. And they've been joined by jet aircraft. The landscape which attracts the poets, painters and tourists is also perfect for military low-flying exercises. The RAF knows jet aircraft are unwelcome visitors. But 100,000 sorties are flown in the UK every year.
Brian Redhead and Frank Mellor ask why people have to put up with them.

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.
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.
