: MRS. DALE'S DIARY

Mrs. Dale, the doctor's wife, records the daily happenings in the life of her family
Script by Hazel Adair
and (Continued in next column)
Dr. and Mrs. Dale found it impossible to refuse to take Mrs. Mountford to France in their car, particularly in view of Miss Marchbanks's obvious excitement about her own holiday plans in Mrs. Mountford's absence. David tried unsuccessful to persuade Clifford Pugh to postpone his marriage to Jenny. Tiggy and Jan surprised a burglar in the Fieldings' house. Having at last got Mrs. Dale to agree to having her bedroom decorated while she was on holiday, Mrs. Morgan was furious when Maggs said he was too busy with Mrs. Vyner's shop to do it then; Mrs. Dale was secretly relieved.

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.
