A programme for children at home
Useful Box Day
Miranda Connell , Rick Jones
In the story chair, H. E. Todd
There are many ways of making a picture, and in Play School this week you will see a different way each day.
On Tuesday MIRANDA CONNELL reads the story of ' St. George and the Fiery Dragon ' by Elizabeth and Gerald Rose , and as it's Dressing-up Day, do you think RICK JONES will become St. George or the Dragon?
On Thursday the arched window will show two children exploring the ruins of Tintagel Castle and Merlin's Cave. Some people believe King Arthur once had his castle at Tintagel, and the story that day is the legend of how Arthur became King.
H E. TODD returns to the story-teller's chair with three more stories about Bobby Brewster.

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, and programmes to purchase.

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.
