The lives behind six legendary names - told by their biographers. 2: Thomas Cook and his Son
Written and presented by the distinguished poet, journalist and writer John Pudney
World travel is easy - we take it for granted. One hundred and fifty years ago travel for most people didn't exist - until this Victorian pioneer and businessman had the vision, in a century just awakening to its possibilities, to make travel possible for everyone. Joined by his son - with whom he had a stormy relationship - he began in the 19th century what is familiar to us in this century as the Package Holiday.
JOHN PUDNEY , himself a great traveller, is especially drawn by the unexpected motives and early influences in Cook's life which led that Victorian opportunist to lay the foundations of modern tourism.
