Majorca - the Tourist Factory?
A Holiday 87 Special Report This island of Majorca is the Mecca of the package-tour traveller. Some 41 million holidaymakers go there every year. Many go to soak up the sun and the sangria. Others seek a spot of culture, a touch of 'artistic expression'. Most regard Majorca as somewhere to have an undemanding good time. A few go there - believe it or not - to get away from the crowds. How can Majorca be all things to all holidaymakers; how can it retain any character of its own under the pressure of all those foreigners on pleasure bent? Frank Bough ,
John Carter and Gillian Reynolds take a long look around the island that has been described as 'a holiday assembly line'. The result may well surprise many who think they know Majorca. It surprised us.

by Len Murray with Geoffrey Goodman In the second of four programmes, Len Murray , former General Secretary of the TUC, talks about one of the most turbulent periods he had to face.
First, the Labour governments of the 1960s, determined to control wages and put legal constraints on the trade unions, followed by a Conservative government with even more radical proposals.
He tells Geoffrey Goodman why these attempts failed and how Edward Heath threw away a chance of resolving the miners' strike of 1973, during the 'three day week'.

Six episodes in the history of NATO
1: Britain Couldn't Do it Alone Forty years ago, at the end of the Second World War, both the American government and the American people wanted to withdraw their troops from Europe as quickly as possible.
And yet, 40 years later, there are still 300,000 American troops in Europe - a major part of the United States's contribution to NATO.
What led the United States to make this commitment to the defence of Europe?

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.
