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.
(Repeated on Wednesday at 11.16 a.m.)
Elsie spread gossip about the row between Maud French and Mrs. Freeman, hinting that while she was in Capri Mrs. Freeman did something very shocking. Mrs. Freeman threatened Elsie with full exposure of what happened at Guildford. Gwen's boys did not return home from school one day. For a long time they could not be found; eventually David remembered a cafe where he sometimes took them for ices, and found them there with Kate, who had been meeting them often on their way home from school. David was furiously angry with Kate. He didn't immediately tell Gwen who had been with the boys, but she guessed. Kate broke down at the cafe, and Vicky was called to take her home.

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.
