: MRS. DALE'S DIARY

Script by Lesley Wilson
Repeated on Friday at 11.15 a.m.
Productions by Betty Davies and Eileen Cullen
Mrs. Dale writes:
Richard rang up last Thursday and asked Jim to lunch with him at his Club. Jim and I had planned to lunch together so I was a bit indignant when Jim told me he had agreed. I didn't feel any better about it when he told me that their meeting was connected with Margaret Cunningham. However, I drove up to town with Jim and decided I'd go and see Sally and then Martin took us both out to lunch. Sally obviously was also in the dark about Jim and Richard and Margaret Cunningham. Bob is in Milan on a business trip and Mr. Ransome has sent Caradoc to help in the garage. Mother has had a slight argument with Vicky and Johnnie about their business arrangements-but Vicky has now gone to Paris because Max Desages has had an accident. I don't really know what the position is between Vicky, Johnnie and Max, but whatever it is I'm sure Mother is on Max's side.

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.
