: PLAY SCHOOL

A programme for children at home
Useful Box Day
Presenters this week,
Julie Stevens , Lionel Morton
Today's story is called
' Follow This Line ' by MICHAEL O'LEARY
0 we can play on the big bass drum, And this is the music to it;
Boom-boom-boom goes the big bass drum,
And that's the way we do itl
Drums, cymbals, guitars, and a wobble board are some of the musical instruments Julie and Lionel make and play each day this week. Some musicians who go on a journey-and keep playing all the time-come into today's picturebook story. On Dressing-up Day the toys go to the park to listen to a band, and later on in the week the windows show new bells being made and tested in a foundry. There are many favourite songs and nursery rhymes in Play School this week, but on Friday Lionel sings a new song of his own.

Down a country lane struts a man ... a tramp? ... possibly. But not a typical one ... he tries the door of a partly ruined house ... is there anyone in residence? ... yes ... a tramp ... typical in appearance, but not in behaviour. Over the next twelve hours they adjust to each other mentally ...

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.
