: CHILDREN'S HOUR

' More Tales of Pebblings Village,' by Modwena Sedgwick. Told by David. 2—' Mrs. Red Widow '
' More About the Bell Family'
A serial play in six parts written for Children's Hour by Noel Streatfeild
4—' Miss Newton
Makes a Suggestion'
Production by Josephine Plummer
The blow has fallen — and just as everything seemed to be going so well. The children's Uncle Alfred and Aunt Rose had planned to go to America, leaving Veronica, their daughter, with her grand-mother and grandfather. Now the cook has got mumps, and Veronica cannot go there after all, so the Bell family have been asked to have her instead to stay at St. Mark's Vicarage for the six weeks. To say that the Bells dislike their cousdn would be an understatement-and no wonder, for she is thoroughly spoilit and tiresome. Yes, the immediate future looks black indeed.

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.
