On Sunday, I lead (Amy tells me I was the producer but that sounds way too highfaluting) the monthly Institute of Ideas programme on Two Valleys Radio. It was scary, frustrating but also quite good fun. As it was on Spring Bank Holiday Sunday, “holidays” was the obvious theme. But while so many are feeling the squeeze of austerity, are holidays a luxury or a necessity?
Do holidays have to be expensive? Can we look at holidays in the past for ideas for the future?
What is the essence of a good holiday?
Why does the Candlelighters’ charity offer holidays for families with children undergoing cancer treatment?
For answers to these questions, an interview with someone who remembers holidaying before WWII and to hear some outstanding writing visit the Two Valleys Radio website and listen again ~
