After 25 years Holiday cuts down on its own vacation by returning for an extended series now, rather than in the new year. With the new brochures now published a year ahead, those getaway decisions are being made ever earlier.

Linda Robson and Pauline Quirke take to the road in America, and John Cole visits Spain and Austria.
Jill Dando, who introduces the first programme from the Seychelles, is joined this week by Eamonn Holmes , who travels to Minorca with a family on their first holiday abroad,
Kathy Tayier and her family on a trip to Dartmoor and Paul Gogarty on late availability holidays, and Sue Cook welcomes Sankha Guha
, a seasoned traveller on behalf of the Rough Guides. Producer Simon Shaw

The Portrait Now
After a major refurbishment, the National Portrait
Gallery In London is back in business this week as the Queen opens the new late-20th-century galleries and two major exhibitions of modern portraiture In the four months before the reopening, Omnibus filmed the private life of the gallery as it reassessed its role as a record of public and private faces.
The film looks at the gallery's traditions, discovers how portraits are commissioned, chosen, rejected and even improved upon, and invites visitors to give their opinions of the works on display.
Among those in the new exhibitions is John Mortimer , who sat for artist Tai-Shan
Schierenberg. "I don't like looking at myself at all, " says Mortimer. " shave in the dark without a mirror.... But I'm very proud of this portrait. It looks like how I feel."

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.
