Mrs. Dale writes:
No wonder Sue was worried, the police have served a summons on her because Bill Harvill who was teaching her to drive had had his licence suspended. Sally has gone to Paris, she is finding Margaret Cunningham interfering, but she took over very capably when Richard got 'flu just after Sally left. Grandfather Dale and Flora came down for the Dairy Show. Mother is annoyed with us not helping him to mend the breach with Alec.

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.
