This is the story of rise of the summer holiday as Britain's most popular leisure activity. From pre-war through to the 1950s were the boom years for the British seaside resorts, but by the mid 1960s jet airliners were in widespread service, leading to package holidays and the mass invasion of the Rivieras and Costas. "Some Like it Hot" looks at the trends in holidays favoured by the British and examines the history of each, featuring first person tales of the highs and lows of the annual break.
