: MRS. DALE'S DIARY

Script by Jonquil Antony
Mrs. Freeman's cat ' Captain ' was found near Reigate and because he still had on the disc with Henry Freeman's address in Cornwall, he was sent there by rait. Mrs. Mountford proposed to accompany Dr. and Mrs. Dale on their drive across France when they went on holiday, but Dr. Dale insisted that she should be told there would not be room for her in the car. Bob and Jenny unexpectedly met at David's flat and afterwards David tried to dissuade Jenny from marrying Clifford Pugh, as he was quite convinced that she was still in love with Bob. Thanks to Captain Murray's intervention. Julie's parents agreed to let her take a five-year veterinary training if she promised not to marry Trevor until she had qualified.

: From the Barren Lands of North Canada John Hillaby introduces URANIUM CITY

Imagine a bush township with no permanent water supply, five roads, twenty-two taxis, and a population of men seeking the most sought-after metal in the world. That is Uranium City today. John Hillaby has brought back a record in sound of a recent visit to this almost fabulous boom-town on the north shore of Lake Athabaska. The record includes talks with the prospectors and storekeepers who aim to make money fast. He ventured cautiously into what must be one of the busiest and most isolated saloon bars in the world. And he took his recording gear to the bottom of the Eldorado uranium mine where men blast out the raw material for atomic energy one thousand feet underground.

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.
