Script by Ian Girvan
Repeated Wed., 11.15 a.m. Produced by PETER BRYANT and EILEEN CULLEN
Miss Roberts has been persuaded to sit in her garden and Mrs. Dale has had tea with her there. Graham Austin has at last shown his hand and told David that if he co-operates in a bid to take over Draycotts he will be given a Directorship by Austin's company. Gwen advises David to tell Tom Draycott the whole story but David is evasive when Tom questions him. Mrs. Dale has decided to start driving lessons again much to Dr. Dale's alarm, and Jenny has decided to advertise for drama pupils.

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.
