The Travel Show is a BBC travel programme. The new programme launched in February 2014,[1] and is the immediate successor of long standing travel programme, Fast Track.

Utilising a network of correspondents in London, Tokyo, Sydney, New York and Kuala Lumpur, the programme aims to provide unique insight into the world of travel. It first aired in the UK in late February, after Winter Olympics coverage, in a Friday morning slot on BBC Two. A Sunday evening slot was also added on the BBC News channel in April 2014 and BBC iPlayer.

Transmission times[edit]

The following times are local to the United Kingdom (GMT and BST respectively). Broadcasts are sometimes replaced by other programming at short notice due to the nature of these channels' reactions to news and current events. Some weeks the 30 minute programme may not be shown at all due to coverage of live events, even when it is scheduled to be shown up to six times over the weekend period. In this case, website viewing on the BBC iPlayer is the only way to see the programme.
