Mrs. Dale writes:
Fickling is thinking over Mother's idea that he should go and work for Mr. Bonner. I went to see Jenny and found Norah very indignant about the film company's nurse, but Bob has solved that situation by dismissing the nurse. Salty was worried because she found a deficit in the till at ' Sarah' and had to tackle Vivien about it. At home, things are a bit better because Mr. O'Malley has agreed to have Mrs. Mountford at the Shamrock.' But of course Mrs. Mountford is very cross and has threatened to change her will again. She has written to her solictor and appealed to Henry for help.

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.
