Help Needed from Early Tourist's!

I have once again been contacted by the BBC asking if we can help them to find people who would like to take part in a series of programmes they are making, one of which will be about the birth of the package holiday and will be prented by Melvyn Bragg.

If anyone would like to take part please contact me at and I will pass on your details to the BBC

Here is part of the email I received....

"We will be asking people with memories and stories to come along and watch our historical film footage and share their stories, its adding a modern perspective to the existing footage. This will both be transmitted on BBC 2 and archived with the historical footage to keep an up to date and accurate account of various period.
Our programmes cover a variety of historical themes such as the home front and evacuation in the 40s, seaside holidays in the 50s, teenage life in the 50s, school life in the 1960s, The jubilee in the 70s as well as many other themes.
Any help would be gratefully received, we are really looking for characters who remember the beginning of the package holidays. Who either went on them and have stories to tell, or who may have been employed in any part of the industry - be it as a Rep, Bar or Hotel Worker ( or Owner), Cabin Crew or Airport staff."
