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.
In the story chair, Lionel Gamlin

Would you like to go up into space? Each day this week Play School starts with a poem about the sun and the moon, and on Thursday the arched window shows a rocket being launched.
Colin Jeavons finds magician's clothes on the pegs on Tuesday and Carol Chell has a new picturebook to show you on Friday-Harry by the Sea by Gene Zion, illustrated by Margaret Bloy Graham.
Lionel Gamlin's stories are 'A little from here and a little from there', 'The magician who was different' and 'The flying pancake'.
(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.
