: THE WEDNESDAY PLAY A Child and A Half

by OWEN HOLDER with and Story editor. Shaun MacLoughlin
Designer, Richard Henry
Producer, GRAEME McDONALD
Directed by ALAN Bridges
Lucy, who is eight, believes absolutely in fairies. She sees them in the garden and she posts letters to them in the hollow tree.
Henry Ramsden loves children.
He is senior colleague to Lucy's ambitious father Ronald and when he asks if he can answer Lucy's letters-as if from the Fairy King! -Ronald and his wife Sylvia reluctantly agree.
The letters are a great pleasure to Henry and a source of intense wonder and excitement to Lucy; but the make-believe world they are living in is based on deceit and cannot last.

: ANIMAL BUSINESS

i: Pets
We British have a deserved reputation for some extraordinary attitudes towards pet animals. We spend millions on pet foods and accessories and yet animal welfare societies devote much of their time to destroying abandoned dogs and cats.
In spite of health risks, which are largely ignored by existing legislation, there is a boom in the pet trade because more and more people want unusual and exotic pets. You need no qualifications to be a pet trader. Britain's pet shops are often well below standards enforced by some other countries.
Fyfe Robertson in the first of three film reports examines the pet trade in Britain and finds much that is controversial and disturbing.

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.
