News Summary MRS. DALE'S DIARY


We have produced a Style Guide to help editors follow a standard format when editing a listing. If you are unsure how best to edit this programme please take a moment to read it.
Mrs. Dale, the doctor's wife, records the daily happenings in the life of her family
Script by Lesley Wilson
While Mrs. Freeman was cleaning the windows of her flat, a window fell, trapping her hands. No one else was at home but Dr. Claughton and Isabel Fielding, hearing Mrs. Freeman's cries, broke in through the french windows and took her to hospital. After the weekend, the Dales discovered that a thief had entered through the broken window and stolen Mrs. Dale's handbag. Dotty and Sam Odgers decided to have their wedding on New Year's Day. Jenny's first night was a great success.

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
