A distinguished visitor with Richard Dimbleby in the Bernese Oberland
Each year more and more people take their holidays abroad, and before doing so spend much time reading brochures and guide-books, trying to decide where to go. It is to help them that the Passport series has been planned. In the first edition tonight Richard and Dilys Dimbleby will be seen visiting the beautiful Bernese Oberland in Switzerland for a winter-sports holiday. The programme will include many aspects of such a holiday - the ski-ing, the cable and rack railways up mountains, the food, and the opinions of other visitors, including one very famous holidaymaker.
Brittany and Portugal will be visited in later editions of Passport to be seen in the New Year when people will be planning their summer holidays for 1959.
