: Holiday

Introduced by Cliff Michelmore
Last year there was much concern about crime and violence in some Spanish holiday resorts, leading the authorities to set in motion a high-profile law-enforcement campaign. Sarah Kennedy travelled to Benidorm to look at a day in the life of a tourist resort and discover how effective the policing has been. The Nile, which nourished the civilisations of ancient
Egypt, has long been a magnet for travellers and explorers, many of whom seek to fulfil a romantic dream along its waters.
Journeying through upper Egypt, John Carter takes a voyage into the past.
Bill Buckley takes to the skies over Yorkshire for this week's activity holiday report. The object of the exercise was to learn to pilot a glider in just five days. Did he do it? Watch and find out. In the studio, information to help you plan your holiday, at home and abroad. Producer TOM SAVAGE

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
