This year many people from Britain are taking their first holiday abroad in the South of France. There they will bask in the sun on the Mediterranean shore and tour inland to see the sights of Provence, a country where the people and their festivals are as romantic as the scenery.
This programme offers practical advice on travelling to the Riviera, and how to get about the country, as well as a preview of what visitors will see and hear for themselves when they get there.
For the third year in succession the Shell Film Unit has produced a film review of Britain's latest aircraft. Viewers can see the latest types of jets, freight-carriers, fighters, flying-wings, and many others.
The planes first taxi past the watching camera, then go through their paces in the air.
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.
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.
