: MRS. DALE'S DIARY

Script by Basil Dawson
(Continued in next column)
Sally drove the Dales down to Gimlet Green for the Austen baby's christening. She learned that Richard Fulton had decided to let Raffaele take over ' Stephanie,' and that Cho-Cho San had been shown at Cruft's Dog Show but failed to win a prize. Gwen and Madge Curran made an arrangement to look after each other's children, and Gwen told Richard Fulton she would be going back to work for him. Mrs. Freeman introduced Mr. Bamford to Miss March-banks and was surprised to learn that she had been more impressed by Mr. Belkins, his friend. Grandfather Dale arrived at Virginia Lodge and Mrs. Freeman had to break her promise and tell him that Alec was working as a building labourer.

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.
