: Mrs. Dale's Diary

Mrs. Dale, the doctor's wife, records the daily happenings in the life of her family
Script by Joan Carr-Jones
Jenny refused Grandfather Dale's offer that she should live at Kings Acre While she was with the repertory company in Meliburgh. Mrs. Dale and Mrs. Freeman went to the Sale At Parkwood Lodge.
Marleen and Mrs. Skeats quarrelled and when Marleen refused to stay at her mother-in-law's house, Mrs. Morgan offered her and Stan a room until they decided what to do. Stan's loyalty was completely divided between his mother and his wife; and it was Mr. Morgan's advice that brought them all together again. Sally's successful effort at making herself a hat gave Mrs. Freeman the idea that they might be a commercial proposition for 'Sarah.' Mrs. Mountford announced that she and Madame de Grey were thinking of buying Parkwood Lodge together and opening it as an hotel.
(Charles Lamb is appearing in 'For Better, For Worse' at the Comedy Theatre, London)
To be repeated tomorrow at 11.0 a.m.

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.
