: MRS. DALE'S DIARY

Mrs. Dale, the doctor's wife, records the daily happenings in the life of her family
Script by Basil Dawson
Mrs. Dale spent the day with Sally and met her new vendeuse, Monique Char-brier. Bob passed his Board and gave the family details of his new course. Dr.
Dale and Andrew Gardiner had an argument about when the Nursing Home should open. Mr. Fulton took a furnished flat in Chelsea and Gwen told him she would have to stop working when they moved, as Billy could not get into the Nursery School. Miss Marchbanks returned from Scotland to Mrs. Mountford, who tried to be very sweet to her. Grandfather Dale invited the family to King's Acre for Hogmanay.

The next night the strange craft visited No. 2 again and its crew, believed to be Martians, on finding the freighter was now occupied, returned to their own ship and made off. Meanwhile Jet and his companions had reached the Argyre desert some 400 miles to the West and there Jet stumbled upon an amazing sight.

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.
