: Holiday for Simon

A comedy by Alfred Shaughnessy.

The time is warm September; the place a villa on the coast near Cannes where lives Clare, Comtesse de Vernay, and Alexis Mouranoff. She was formerly a great opera singer, he was once a fashionable painter, and the villa is a house of regrets, half-hearted hopes, and memories, its only real life coming from Nicole, the pretty young maid. But now visitors arrive: Angela Dale-Adams, an attractive Englishwoman in her late thirties, recently divorced, her seventeen-year-old son Simon, and Simon's tutor for the holidays, Charles Latimer, who turns out to be different from the expected dry-as-dust schoolmaster. In the circumstances romantic attachments are inevitable, and we see how love is different for the elderly, the ageing, and the very young.

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
