: The Tourist: Ways of Escape

A six-part series, filmed over an entire tourist season in four continents, examining how and why the tourist business first evolved, and how the world has altered as a result.
The desire to get away from everyday reality first found expression in the taking of scenic holidays in the English countryside.
In the present day, some tourists find it necessary to travel halfway around the globe to find peace and isolation.
The series examines the cultural and commercial impact of this travel, and the connections tourism has with work and leisure, fantasy and national identity.
For the past 250 years the Lake District has provided the raw material for an array of poets, painters and guide-book writers. But today that region is almost too well known for those in search of more unspoilt scenery. This film travels from the Lake District to the Gobi Altai region of south-west Mongolia to observe a group of contemporary tourists savouring the still desolate landscape of Genghis Khan and the elusive snow leopard.

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.
