: MRS. DALE'S DIARY

Mrs. Dale, the doctor's wife, records the daily happenings in the life of her family
Script by Basil Dawson
Bob returned home one day very distressed because he thought he had knocked down Mrs. Mountford, who had previously threatened to complain about the noise he made on his motor-bike at two in the morning. Fortunately, Miss Marchbanks, who witnessed the so-called accident, revealed that Mrs. Mountford had not been touched by the motor-bike, but had tripped over the kerb and that, barring a few bruises, she was quite unhurt. Dr. and Mrs. Date went to spend the day with Dr. Laurie and his wife in the country. Mrs. Dale met with opposition when discussing her Christmas plana for the Children's Hospital with the bureaucratic Mrs. Crosby, wife of one of the hospital doctors, who felt nothing should be done until the local branch of the Hospital League had been properly organised. David got an increase in salary and he and Gwen decided to celebrate by going to the local Charity Ball for which Gwen should have a new dress. Sally had a mysterious letter from one Mr. Meadows saying he had a business proposition to put to her.

Episode 13
Music composed and conducted by Van Phillips
Written and produced by Charles Chilton
The crew of rocketship Luna landed on a mysterious earth-like planet, only to discover that it was the Earth but that they had returned to it thousands of years after, or before, the time they left.
Unable to do anything about their position, except to make the best of it, they settled down to make themselves as comfortable as possible. And then, one night, while the others slept and Lemmy kept watch, he was startled by strange sounds coming from the forest nearby.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
