: MRS. DALE'S DIARY

Script by Billy Thatcher
Productions by Betty Davies and John R. Hopkins
Mrs. Dale, Mrs. Freeman, and Sally saw Gwen, David, and the children off to Wales. Mrs. Dale went to Raynes Park in order to speak to Elsie Freeman. Later in the week Elsie arrived unexpectedly at Virginia Lodge and Mrs. Date asked her to stay to supper. Mrs. Freeman was rather rude to Elsie. Dr. Dale told Ivor that he would not be able to stay after his training period was completed. Dr. Dale then found Ivor putting Jemima's kittens back in the cupboard under the stairs in the middle of the night, but took it all quite calmly.

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.
