: 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. Mountford offered Dr. Gardiner the money needed for the Nursing Home, but Dr. Dale was against acceptance and Dr. Gardiner eventually realised that if Mrs. Mountford had any connection with the Home she would make life impossible. Captain got out of the Chinese vase; Bob sold it for sixteen pounds and Mrs. Dale decided to use the money to help Mrs. Leathers. David heard of a flat in Battersea, but Gwen did not feel very enthusiastic about it.

'The Red Planet'
Episode 8 with David Jacobs
Music composed and conducted by Van Phillips Written and produced by Charles Chilton
Whitaker is dead; and, in dying, his body transformed from that of a young man into an old one. After the Discovery, now manned by only Lemmy and Jet, and Freighter No. 6, now manned by Mitch and Doc, had rejoined the rest of the Fleet, Jet played through the recording tapes he had found strewn over the floor of Whitaker's ship. However, there was nothing on them to give any clue as to why Peterson had attacked Whitaker and then, apparently, committed suicide by letting himself out of the freighter. And then, Jet and Lemmv were startled by Peterson's voice coming over the radio.

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.
