: MRS. DALE'S DIARY

Mrs. Dale, the doctor's wife. records the daily happenings in the life of her family
Script by Hazel Adair
Mrs. Date, Mrs. Freeman, and Isabel Fielding went to the Grand National and whilst there, Mrs. Freeman saw Mr. Collins. During their absence, Mrs. Morgan gave in her notice to Dr Dale, but when Mrs. Dale returned she ironed out the trouble and Mrs. Morgan came back. Parkwood Lodge was broken into and, among other things, some valuable wallpaper was taken. Mrs. Dale-when visiting Mrs. Leathers-thought she saw some of it in a drawer. Mrs. Benneth died and Sally signed papers agreeing to become Trevor's guardian Sally found it very difficult telling Trevor about this and he was mos: unco-operative. He was called for his medical on the morning after his aunt died and learned that the R.A.P. quota was full and that he would have to go into the Army.

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.
