Mrs. Dale, the doctor's wife, records the daily happenings in the life of her family
Script by Lesley Wilson
To be repeated tomorrow at 11.0 a.m. Last week Sally had an interview with Mr. Morns who offered her the position of manageress in the floral department of his Oxford Street store. Sally would get a larger salary, but she was concerned because she felt it would be disloyal to Miss Russell to accept the position. Mr. Fulton, who was going to Wales, ottered to take David with him so he could visit his family. Gwen was disappointed because she had already planned the things they were going to do that week-end.

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.
