: MRS. DALE'S DIARY

Script by Jonquil Antony
Repeated on Thursday at 11.15 a.m.
Produced by Betty Davies and Eileen Cullen
Mrs. Dale writes:
Mother announced on Thursday morning that she intended to spend the day in bed and I couldn't decide whether she was ill or not. We were going to the theatre that night, but all the family turned up to say good-bye to Sally, and Mother gave way to an hysterical outburst. She calmed down when Sally told her she had changed her plans and wasn't going for a few days yet; and naturally we felt a bit indignant when Mother got up and went to the shop the next day as if nothing had happened. We had to prepare for Sally's departure all over again.

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.
