Gordon Wilkins covers the world of holiday motoring.

Free Enterprise II, a £1,300,000 new car ferry, made its first voyage from Dover to Calais yesterday, one of half a dozen ships coming into service this year to take cars to the Continent and Ireland. But why do only three in every hundred British motorists travel abroad for their holidays? Is it because increased cross-channel competition has failed to make car ferrying cheaper?

A case for stricter control?
Organised criticism of television is growing. Viewer groups, including M.P.s, have complained of too much sex, violence, and moral affront. Some have called for censorship. Tonight's programme examines some of these charges and the responsibilities that face producers.

Time Out goes Flying-Fishing and Potholing

Go, Papa, Go
Sheila Scott, Britain's top woman racing pilot, and 15 PAPA, a Piper Comanche 400, enter into a partnership designed to break fifteen light-aircraft speed records. At 8.0 p.m. tonight Sheila Scott and 15 PAPA should be on their way back from Paris to the R.A.F. Station Northolt where Time Out Outside Broadcast cameras will be waiting to meet her.

Fishing with the Mayfly
At this time of the year the villages of Ireland are deserted. The shops are shut, the doctor's surgery empty, and the doctor himself is out-fishing with the mayfly, the favourite food of trout. Ludovic Kennedy reports from the West Coast of Ireland.

Two Thousand Feet Beneath the Earth
The Pyrenees, on the French-Spanish border, are a potholers' paradise. In 1950, the deepest pot-hole in the world, 'Pierre St. Martin', was discovered there by Georges Lepineux. Tonight Ian MacNaught-Davis descends into this cavern two and a half miles inside the Pyrenees, to report on the progress of a French team of speleologists.
