This edition, presented by Penny Junor , includes insider reports on three very different destinations in the Caribbean.
Plus a guide to choosing the right island for different types of holidays.
Amanda Redman , recently seen in the BBC1 detective drama Beck, heads for Puerto Rico, which has been described as "rather like Cuba, but the plumbing works". From the capital San Juan she travels to the island's interior, checkingoutthe local cultural offerings.
Simon Calder , travel editor of The
Independent, discovers that even in the increasingly popular Caribbean it is still possible to get away from it all, on lesser-known islands such as Dominica.
He finds that tropical rainforest treks or hidden inns and hotels offer an alternative to lying on the beach.
And, on his first trip to the islands, comedian Arthur Smith flies to Antigua which, it is claimed, has 365 beaches.

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.
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.
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.
