At 10 o'clock each Saturday morning, Arthur Smith presents Excess Baggage on BBC Radio 4. It is basically an alternative holiday programme, where a panel of knowledgeable and/or entertaining guests discuss a particular trend in travel, or a certain destination. The programme is usually both entertaining and informative, providing insiders' knowledge on many unusual destinations. Excess baggage follows on from Home Truths, and is a wonderful addition to any Saturday morning lie in.

Recent highlights include features on health farm holidays, Istanbul and short breaks promising to result in self discovery. Arthur Smith's wit livens up even the most dull of panelists, and guarantees that the programme does not take itself too seriously.
