: Honeymoon in the Sky

A Yesterday's Witness Special
Tonight's programme starts with the British pioneers, literally, getting off the ground - ' The only way to learn to fly was to go and teach yourself. You did straight runs, getting faster all the time, and then you looked over the side and found the ground was gone!' -and continues through to the time in the early 20s when young ex-Royal Flying Corps pilots flew for the world's first international airlines in ramshackle converted bombers.
With old film and music from the archives, with new film of present-day enthusiasts who fly some of these veteran flying machines for fun, and stories by some of the intrepid pioneers themselves, we have a taste of this Honeymoon in the Sky.


Editor: William Symon
Producer: Stephen Peet

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.

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.
