: Holiday 88

with Frank Bough The French Riviera
A special edition on one of the most glamorous holiday coastlines in the world.
Frank Bough , Anne Gregg and Kathy Tayler examine the appeal of the Cote D'Azur and why it goes on attracting British tourists more than a century after the English upper classes first made it fashionable. Today poseurs mingle with stars like Joan Collins on the promenade in St Tropez and you're only noticed on the beaches if you're actually wearing something. The Holiday 88 team shows you how to get there, what to see on the coast and in the real France which lies behind it - and how to get value for your francs. Yes, you can have a budget holiday here!

Odd Noses of Borneo Narrated by David Attenborough
No one knows why this nose grows, but grow it does. It's huge, pendulous, and distinctly odd. It belongs to the male proboscis monkey, the most bizarre of the creatures that live in the suffocating mangrove swamps of Borneo. Here glutinous mud flats heave with fish that walk on their fins, and multi-coloured crabs signal with claws almost as grotesque as the monkeys in the trees above. Photography JIM CLARE

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.
