: MRS. DALE'S DIARY

Script by Hazel Adair
(Continued in next column)
Mrs. Dale and Bob went to Gimlet Green to collect some Christmas decorations. Mrs. Dale fell from a step-ladder and ran the shears into her leg; she had to be taken home and put to bed. Earlier she and Mrs. Morgan had met Monument's future wife and Bessie told Mrs. Dale how upset she was about the marriage. Sally and Fulton were reconciled. He was delighted to hear she would be spending Christmas at home after all. Gwen met Madge Curran and her small son who lived in the flat above her. Henry and Joyce arrived for Christmas.

The programme produced by Michael North
The second part of 'The Jack Hylton Story' continues to tell of the rise to his present managerial eminence of this most colourful figure in the entertainment world. His band-leading days behind him, he branches out into every form of theatrical activity: revues, musical comedies, symphony concerts, opera, ballet, Crazy Gang shows, pantomimes, and circuses. This programme tells of his presentation of such shows as ' Call Me Madam,' ' Paint Your Wagon,' ' Kiss Me, Kate,' and such notable revivals as ' The Lilac Domino' and ' Irene.' He has also been responsible for such adventurous productions of straight plays as No Room at the Inn,' ' Women of Twilight,' and ' The Moon is Blue.'

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.
