Holiday 70 goes motoring where the roads are less crowded - just half a day's drive from Dublin to one of the most beautiful and probably the wildest area of the British Isles - Connemara in Western Ireland. This film examines the ingredients that make up a 'fly-hire a car' holiday.
In complete contrast, Turkey, a land busy preparing for the tourist invasion. Holiday 70 looks at one of the first 15-day inclusive jet arrangements to Kusadasi.

Virginia Woolf: 1882-1941
Virginia Woolf, who took her own life at the age of 59, may fairly be regarded as the most remarkable Englishwoman of her generation. She was a beauty and a great conversationalist. She was a mystic with a highly educated rational mind, yet from girlhood she was subject to fits of madness which finally killed her. Above all she was a writer, the author of several masterpieces including Mrs Dalloway, To the Lighthouse, and The Waves, and was regarded by many of her contemporaries, including the poet T. S. Eliot, as the greatest prose writer of her time.
This film celebrates the lyricism of her writing and also paints the portrait, through the memories of her friends and relations, of a dedicated artist and a unique companion. It also tries to show how the contradictions in her character were triumphantly resolved in her art.
Among the many people taking part in the film are: Elizabeth Bowen, Lord David Cecil, Duncan Grant, Raymond Mortimer, George Rylands and Virginia Woolf's nephew, Professor Quentin Bell
