Script by Robert Turley
Repeated on Friday at 11.15 a.m.
Mrs. Dale writes:
Miriam and I went ahead with our plans for her magazine feature and hoped to do most of the work when I thought Jim would be away, but he is now being evasive about his holiday dates. I still haven't reminded him about our wedding anniversary. Richard has engaged a Mrs. Cunningham as his secretary in place of the bird-watcher, and thinks she will be very good. Sue's efforts to help Pat over the Myra situation have proved useless; but Elsie thinks romance is in the air-for her and Mr. Bonner!

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.
