: PLAY SCHOOL

A programme for children at home
Useful Box Day
Presenters this week,
Julie Stevens , Brian Cant
Today's story is called
' The Little House' by VIRGINIA LEE BURTON
The fair maid who, on the first of May,
Goes to the fields at the break of day, And washes in dew from the hawthorn tree,
Will ever after handsome be.
That's Jemima's special poem for May Day. There are some more trees in Play School on Tuesday when Brian and Julie try to make an English country garden for Humpty Dumpty. On Thursday and Friday, Norman Mitchell returns as the story-teller to tell two new stories about the adventures of Mr. Bits and Pieces.

: THE GLORY THAT REMAINS

... of Persia and India
1: The Sudden Empire
From the deserted courtyards of Persepolis, the ritual city of Darius the Great, Robert Erskina tells the story of the Achaemenid dynasty
More than 2,000 years ago It flowered suddenly from the high dusty tableland of south-western Persia, ruled with the power of its gold from north India to the Nile and the Black Sea to the Persian Gulf, and met a sudden mysterious death at the hands of Alexander the Great

Tonight's play is a savage but true account of one man's struggle to right a terrible wrong. In eighteenth - century Toulouse, a Protestant, Jean Calas, was unjustly accused of murdering his son, condemned and atrociously tortured to death. Voltaire was so shocked by this dreadful story that for three bitter years, under constant threat to his own life, he unceasingly fought against a stifling conspiracy of silence.

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.
