: MRS. DALE'S DIARY

Mrs. Dale, the doctor's wife, records the daily happenings in the life of her family
Script by Hazel Adair
Dr. Dale celebrated his fiftieth birthday and Gwen and Bob gave a dinner party for him. The doctor was called out to a patient, but later managed to get to the party. Alec tried to borrow some money from him. Bob was interviewed by a selection board for a radio officer course. Grandfather Dale went back to Scotland and took Miss Marchbanks with him as his new housekeeper. Mrs. Dale had no opportunity to ask Mrs. Freeman about her plan to be housekeeper at the nursing home. Gwen agreed to make up her quarrel with Jenny to please Bob.

: ' JOURNEY INTO SPACE'

'The Red Planet'— 11 with David Jacobs
Music composed and conducted by Van Phillips Written and produced by Charles Chilton
Doc and Frank go out in one of the land trucks and find Jet and Mitch in a deep sleep. It is a good time before they awake and Jet recounts a dream he had in which he saw a strange valley covered in rhubarb-like -vegetation. The crew of Discovery ' then start out on their exploration of Mars. Shortly after, Freighter No. 2, coming in to land with a load of supplies ferried down from the remainder of the Fleet still coasting in free orbit 1,000 miles above the Martian surface, crashes some five miles north of the little exploration party.

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.
