: MRS. DALE'S DIARY

Mrs. Dale, the doctor's wife, records the daily happenings in the life of her family
Script by Jonquil Antony
Gwen admitted that she was going to have another baby. Billy was given exactly the same sort of birthday present by both Mrs. Morgan and Monument, which created ill-feeling between them. Grandfather Dale decided that Miss Marchbanks could not fit in as his housekeeper and so Miss Mountford and Mrs. Dale set about obtaining better conditions for her if she did go back to Mrs. Mountford. Despite breakdowns, Sally and Fulton got to Brighton in the car driven by Fickling in the Veteran Car Race. Raffaele recommended a head vendeuse for ' Stephanie ' : he also suggested that Fulton ought to make some enquiries into the financial position of Denby Harris.

: ' JOURNEY INTO SPACE'

'The Red Planet '-12 with David Jacobs
Music composed and conducted by Van Phillips Written and produced by Charles Chilton
Freighter No. 2 of the Mars Fleet crashed some sixty miles north of where the land fleet was camped. Jet tried to reach the wreck before darkness fell, but failed and had to halt for the night on a hill overlooking a purple plain. Then, during the night, a mysterious light was seen moving across the plain below them. Next day the wreck was located and Jet and his companions finally reached it only to find signs that told them another machine had already reached No. 2 and carried off its crew.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

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.
