' Tales of Little Grey Rabbit' by Alison Uttley
Arranged with music and told by David
3—' Little Grey Rabbit's Washing Day'
Singer, Diana Maddox
(The music is recorded)
As Grey Rabbit lay in bed one night, she heard a sound of sing ng in the lane. She ran to the window and leaned out. Along the path came the gypsy rabbit, her feet all silvery in the moonlight. She wore a shawl of rainbow gossamer, and in her ears hung clusters of hazel catkins. On her head she bore a green rush basket, but whether it was filled with clothes-pegs or stars Grey Rabbit couldn't be certain ... the gypsy glided past the garden wall, and her song came to Grey Rabbit's quick ears, although it was soft as a whisper ...

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.

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.
