I had an alarming letter from Maud's solicitor about the weeds and Jim was very angry and insisted I must sack Monument, but Mother seems to think she knows a way of dealing with the matter. Sally has been finding the daily journey to London from Gimlet Green rather tiring and she stayed at home on Monday; as she was worried about Vivien I called in at ' Sarah '-and found Vivien greatly distressed over a row with Mike. On Wednesday we heard that Mike had left her.

MRS. DALE'S DIARY

Script by Robert Turley
Produced by Audreyi Cameron
Repeated on Thursday at 11.16 a.m. Mrs. Dale writes:
When we heard that Mother would be coming out of hospital on Thursday we began to think about a convalescent holiday for her. Of course she will have to rest at home first. Maud suggested that she should take her to America but no one else thought this a good idea! Rosamund Owen has agreed to look after the twins while Jenny is in Rome. On Wednesday I decided to take a day off from work but poor Mrs. Maggs developed lumbago so I had to get down to the housework after all; so it was a nice surprise when Jim announced that he had taken seats for a theatre that evening.

MRS. DALE'S DIARY

Productions by Betty Davies and Eileen Cullen Mrs. Date writes:
Last week was very trying! Mother was obviously worrying about something but wouldn't admit it. Then an awkward situation arose because Margaret Cunningham came to see Jim while Sally was here, and I was forced to ask her to have tea with us. Sally managed to behave well and drove Margaret back to town. Mr. Douglas spent a night with us so that he could be with Sue in the court, and upset us all by refusing to shake hands with Dr. Smithson. She was only fined 30S. so that, at least, could have been worse.

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.
