Useful Box Day
Presenters this week,
Carol Chell , Colin Jeavons

The North wind doth blow. And we shall have snow.
And what will poor robin do then, poor thing?
That is part of the poem which begins Play School each day this week. If you know it, perhaps you will say it with CAROL and COLIN.
EILEEN COLWELL is in the storychair and tells two stories—today ' The little rooster and the diamond button ' and on Wednesday ' The polar bear.' The picturebook on Thursday is called James and the Rain by Karla Kuskin. and on Friday there is a special story with pictures about a snowman which you may have seen before in Plav School.

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.
