' The Tale of Mrs. Tiggy-Winkle ' by BEATRIX POTTER
One misty moisty morning
When cloudy was the weather
There I met an old man
Clothed all in leather
Clothed all in leather
With cap under his chin.
How do you do, and how do you do.
And how do you do again
That is the poem for this week.
Tomorrow Brian wears a hat just like that when he takes Valerie for a ride in an old car
A series of four programmes
1: Discovering the World
Presented by Joan Bliss
Institut des Sciences de l'Education. Geneva
Produced by EDWARD GOLDWYN
What goes on in the mind of a five-year-old? What are they thinking while they are busy painting pictures? What do children slowly understand about the world as they paint it?
What does it mean to a child to be told by his mother he's a naughty boy because he has told a lie or broken a cup? What sense does a child make of the thing he's forbidden to do? How do they learn not only whafs naughty but why something is naughty? How do children learn about right and wrong?
What do the rules in their games mean to a child of five-and what to a child of ten? Is it from games that children can see the need for rules in order to live together?
In this series the answers to these questions come from the children themselves. They talk while busy painting; they describe the games they play.

The phoney war has now become a very real one. After the unfortunate, not to say disastrous, episode at the end of Part 1, Guy Crouchback has been sent back to England with 'a black mark'. He is found a job with Commando training on a remote Scottish island under his old chum and fellow ex-husband of Virginia, Tommy Blackhouse. He also meets up with Trimmer, who, booted out of the Halberdiers, is making a new name for himself in the Commandos. Trimmer, on leave in Glasgow, meets Virginia quite by chance and renews an old, if somewhat slight, acquaintanceship with her...
