Holiday of My Lifetime with Len Goodman
Published 04/03/2016 @ 01:32:06, By kudoss
A second series of this BBC One daytime travel series, which sees a host of celebrities revisit their childhood holidays, is currently being shown, and I was wondering if if would be an acceptable contribution to the site. Most episodes feature an interesting vehicle in the first segment, which the guest would have travelled in during their holiday - cars featured in recent episodes have included a Škoda Super Estelle, Rover SD1 and Citro├źn BX, for instance.

My guess is that you'd have to work hard to convince admins for a series like that. But it could be worth the effort provided that the "interesting vehicles" are interesting, and your list of 3 so far suggests it could be a goer and I'd be keen to see them.

However the trick may be to only select those key vehicles and ignore pretty well everything else. I had the same dilemma with Grand Tours of Scotland but seem to have got away with it by only posting the gems - my approach was to ask myself if any GToS viewer actually consults imcdb, which vehicles might they actually be interested in knowing about. And had a back-up idea of including things which might be interesting for imcdb's collection (eg matching up a couple of vintage coaches to existing entries). But I rejected anything else, leaving what is hopefully a small batch of high quality entries.

And I acknowledge your dedication and self-sacrifice in being prepared to trawl through such dire fare for the greater good.

PS are you any relation of mudflapp?

I'm not sure it is acceptable to list, but in case it is added it should probably only be for the vehicles described as "interesting vehicle [...] which the guest would have travelled in during their holiday" and not all the other vehicles that could be seen in it.

Thanks for the replies, I'll submit vehicles from the episodes available on BBC iPlayer over the next few days.
