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.
(BBC recording)
Repeated on Tuesday at 11.15 a.m.
(Hattie Jacques is appearing in 'Large as Life' at the London Palladium)

Gwen and David drove the twins to meet Bob and Jenny on their return from Italy. Mrs. Dale was annoyed with Bob for visiting Vicky Clare without telling Jenny. She was also worried to discover that he and Jenny had no savings. Maisie started work as the Fultons' new maid, and Miss Kendrick tried to make trouble for her.

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.
