Mrs. Dale, the doctor's wife, records the daily happenings in the life of her family
Script by Hazel Adair
Produced by Antony Kearey
Mrs. Sandiman apologised to Mrs. Dale for her behaviour over the Nursing Home. The dance at the ' Sutherland' was a great success, although it did not raise as much money as had been hoped.
Mr. Belkins had a heart attack at the Dales' house and had to be put in the spare room. Maud French called to tell Mrs. Freeman that she was going to Australia to lecture to the Aborigines. Tiffin got engaged to Mrs. Meadows. Madge Curran asked Gwen if she would share a Scandinavian girl to look after the children; David was offered a job doing murals in a Kensington nursery. Bob passed his exam. Mr. Owen, however, still refused his consent to Bob and Jenny's engagement, so Bob decided to travel to Wales and talk to him personally.

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.
