: Great Railway Journeys: Derry to Kerry

Michael Palin has travelled round the world In 80 days and then journeyed from North to South Pole - all in the cause of television journalism and entertainment. In contrast, a journey from Londonderry, in the north of Ireland, to Kerry in the south is a less frenetic trip. But it does fulfil Palin's love of travel.... and trains in particular.
"There is something about railways that makes life seem tantalisingly simple," he says. "it's a world In which choices are made for you, courses mapped out, paths already plotted, and the direction Is always forward."
On his journey Palin separates the myth from the reality about Irish rail travel, learns more about his Irish great-grandmother, and discovers that railways - and Ireland's train-spotters - are strictly non-sectarian. From Belfast he catches the "peace train", a service operated jointly by Northern Ireland Railways and Irish Rail, and travels to
Dublin. Then it's Cork, the village of Buttevant, and a search for his roots.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
