Ⓓ From the Point of View of a Mother
In the second of a new series of twelve talks, in which various people are to give their views on children, listeners are to hear the point of view of a mother of four boys, aged seven, five, three, and one-and-a-half years. She will talk about her dreams before the first was born, and of her realisation. They are happy and sturdy, with a hundred acres of farm to play in, even if they have to wear each other's clothes, and the new pram, 2s. 6d. second-hand, has a ' dangerous list to port'. She believes that children should be free. to play, work, and create their own magical life in the fairyland of childhood, but within certain limitations. She will give her views on discipline, training, and so forth, and speak of her ambitions for her boys.

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.
