: The Dales

Script by Jeffrey Segal
Repeated Tuesday, 11.15 a.m.
Produced by KEITH WILLIAMS and EILEEN CULLEN
After all the excitement of the Beverley Wall meeting. Mrs. Dale had to undergo her driving test: much to her delight she passed it, and that evening she set off for Oberlinden. Mrs. O'Grady has been endued to look after Dr. Dale in her absence and rather over-estimates the size of his appetite! Jenny has turned down the offer of a tv serial, and Pat has been reconsidering his decision to leave the garage. Sally is still puzzled by mysterious losses in the Boutique.

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.
