5.5 A Nursery Programme
' Dorcas the Wooden Doll': a serial story by Mary F. Moore , told byMay E. Jenkin (Elizabeth). 1-' I am Carved '
Dorcas, the wooden doll, was carved over two hundred years ago in the days of Queen Anne. Unlike Queen Anne, she is very much alive today. What's more, in telling her story she recreates the spacious period of her early days. Dorcas is a very human doll. * You are charming,' says the man who made her, and he put her on the side of the boat in which he completed her, to let dry the paint on her face. Like Narcissus she fell in, for vanity is not peculiar only to men, and her adventures began.

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.
