: THE DALES

Productions by Betty Davies and Eileen Cullen
Dr. and Mrs. Dale visited Exton again and had lunch with the Robertsons. Mrs. Dale looked at houses while Dr. Dale was taken round one of the factories. A few days later Dr. Dale heard officially that the job was his if he wanted it. Mr. and Mrs. Owen came to say goodbye before going to Wales. Mrs. Dale paid another visit to Exton and saw the housing people-after which she came back to Virginia Lodge full of enthusiasm about the future, only to find Dr. Dale wavering about the job and the great change it would entail.

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.
