Judith Chalmers to be granted UNESCO World Heritage status
Having spent most of the 1970s and 80s presenting to camera in a coral bikini, platinum-haired travel-oracle Judith Chalmers has finally been recognised by UNESCO, and will be the latest addition to the elite arena of the world’s most awe-inspiring attractions and phenomena: the World Heritage Site list. Among UNESCO’s usual criteria for World Heritage Sites, Chalmers hit some of the highest marks possible in the following categories: “a masterpiece of human creative genius”, “an important interchange of human values, over a span of time” and not least, “a significant ongoing ecological and biological process”.
Chalmers presented the popular travel show Wish You Were Here…? for some 29 years from 1974, appearing in fluorescent swimwear in some of the most dangerous package holiday destinations in Mediterranean Europe.
UNESCO hope that tourists will flock to Judith Chalmers, perhaps as part of a tour of World Heritage Sites. Other newly added sites include the Ancient Villages of Northern Syria, the Citadel of the Ho Dynasty and an Indian B&B once patronised by Max Gogarty.
