The Great British Holiday

Patrick Forbes starts his revelatory voyage into another national obsession, time off work. This series looks at four typical British holiday destinations; Episode one looks at the sailing holiday specialists Sunsail’s resort Club Phokaia in Turkey. Episode two takes us to Rock, Britain’s answer to St Tropez. In episode three we follow MyTravel to Florida and China, asking ‘is it all over for the package holiday’. The final episode returns to the UK, to Blackpool and its failed casino bid.
