Ludovic Kennedy introduces this weekly programme on the expanding world of leisure with Jeremy James and Chris Rainbow.
When Leisure is a Full-Time Job
"It's one long holiday"
"It was a terrible shock"
"After the first three weeks I nearly went mad"

by Yvonne Mitchell.
Starring Barry Foster, George Pravda, Hana Pravda, Sandra Carom, Alan Baulch

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.
