: News Summary MRS. DALE'S DIARY

Script by Jonquil Antony
Repeated on Tuesday at 11.15 a.m.
Productions by Betty Davies and Keri Lewis
The Owens came up from Wales, and returned feeling fairly cheerful about Caradoc, though Mr. Owen told Dr. Dale privately that he was very worried about what might happen. Caradoc reluctantly went back to the garage, but Bob told him it would be better if he did not start work again until after his second appearance in court. The tour of Jenny's play reached Edinburgh, and Grandfather Dale and Flora went to see her. Mrs. Freeman had lunch with Maud French, who was worried about the way things were going at the flats, and especially about Major Dawlish playing the cornet; but when they met Major Dawlish shortly afterwards, he did not give Maud a chance to mention the subject. Janet was summoned to appear as a witness at Caradoc's second appearance in court; Miriam was very upset and wanted her to deny she had been with Haynes on the night Caradoc knocked him down, but Janet refused.

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.
