: Mrs. Dale's Diary

Script by Lesley Wilson
Thursday's recorded broadcast
Mrs. Dale writes:
"Mother's parcel from Italy turned out to be a Christmas present from Aunt Hester-a dozen Venetian wine goblets. She considers this a useless present and is so indignant at having to pay heavy customs duty on them that she is talking of putting them out for sale in her shop! Wednesday was the 13th and it certainly began badly for a lot of people in Parkwood Hill. Our telephone rang repeatedly in the early hours; all the callers had the same symptoms, which was odd enough, but it was even odder than that, because they had all been to Mr. Bonner's Mayoral Dinner."

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.
