Play School: Useful Box Day

Synopsis

We have produced a Style Guide to help editors follow a standard format when editing a listing. If you are unsure how best to edit this programme please take a moment to read it.
A programme for children at home.
Presenters this week, Marla Landi, Colin Jeavons
In the story chair, Enid Lorimer

How many different kinds of apples do you think there are - 10, 100, 1,000? In fact, there are more than 7,000 different sorts, and each day this week Marla Landi and Colin Jeavons have some in Play School.
The picture book on Tuesday is The Story of Babar, an elephant who became King of his jungle. There will be some real elephants through the arched window, and you can see how strong they are.
Enid Lorimer retells three of her stories: 'A Cow in the House', 'How the Cat Went to See the World', and 'Charlie the Crane'.
(to 11.25)

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
