RE holiday shows, I remember Holiday having a spin-off called "Holiday: You Call The Shots" and it tended to feature more short break/city break type destinations with tips and advice on what to do sent in by email or phone calls (!) from other viewers. Quite an innovative format for the time and took advantage of some off-the-beaten-track travel tips.
There were about ten trillion Holiday spin-offs in the late nineties, You Call The Shots as you say plus also Fasten Your Seatbelt (celebs doing holiday-related jobs), Summer Holiday, Holidays Out, Holiday Memories. Holiday was pretty much a year-round series at the turn of the century with all these spin-offs. Watchdog had a load as well - Weekend Watchdog, of course, plus also Value For Money, The Big Dinner, Face Value and umpteen others.
People complain about The One Show being on every day but before that 7pm was usually just Holiday or Watchdog anyway.
