Script by Billy Thatcher
(C6ntinued in next column)
Mrs. Dale and Jenny made up their quarrel and Mrs. Dale left for Italy as planned. She stayed at Andrea di Pine's pensione. The damage at the villa turned out to be slight; the Edwards, friends of Cousin Bertram , considered taking the two upper floors on a seven-year lease. Jenny's pantomime finished. Mrs. Freeman was angry about damage done to the trees on Parkwood Hill Common. Dotty borrowed money from Mrs. Morgan without telling her mother she intended giving it to Mrs. Leathers. Richard Fulton heard of a cottage to let at Gimlet Green.
To be repeated tomorrow at 11.15 a.m.

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.
