: MRS. DALE'S DIARY

Script by Lesley Wilson
Produced by Charles Lefeaux
Mrs. Dale writes:
When we lunched with Maud in Brighton on Wednesday Mother handed over 21d. which she claimed was the legal compensation for the weed damage, as laid down in the History of Parkwood Hill. Maud, of course, was very indignant. Rosamund Owen has been in an awkward mood and we had quite an argument over Bob and Jenny; but I tried to be patient because she has been genuinely worried about Christopher and now William's job is coming to an end. Vivien has had a further crisis with Mike, but I understand he has now contacted Alcoholics Anonymous. I rashly told Mrs. Sandiman about Miss Fry and the Emergency Rota and she immediately decided that I must do more work for the W.V.S. instead.

: Glacier Hut: 1: The Roar of the Wind

Series in six episodes by G.K. Saunders
The action takes place in and around the guides' hut 4,000 feet up in the Southern Alps of present-day New Zealand.

Jacky Rothwell, the junior guide, has a secret fear of noise. While out climbing with Ted and Bruno in a blizzard, he faints and slips down the side of a precipice - this intensifies his fear. Later, when accompanying a party of schoolgirls on the glacier, there is an accident...

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.
