: Mrs. Dale's Diary

Mrs. Dale records the daily happenings in the life of her family
Dr. Gardiner took Isabel Fielding's flat. On New Year's Eve the family went to King's Acre for Joan and Angus's wedding. Alec seemed depressed, and the reason for this became clear when the Dales returned to London. Denby Harris had a bad financial crash and Alec was arrested. Grandfather Dale sent for Miriam and the children. He and Dr. Dale stood surety for Alec's bail at the Magistrate's Court. Sally and Richard Fulton were worried about 'Stephanie,' and Raffaele made a tentative offer to buy it. The Owens came to London for the first night of Jenny's play, which was a great success.

Doc and Lemmy were forced to board the spherical flying machine which Mitch, who treated his former crew-mates as total strangers, thought was a plane. The sphere took off and finally landed in the region of Lacus Solis where, to Doc and Lemmy's surprise, a flourishing city stood. Meanwhile Frank Rogers , on Jet Morgan's orders, flies in pursuit of the sphere in Freighter No. I, and is reporting his progress to Jet who is still in the land fleet down on the Martian surface.

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.
