: CHILDREN'S HOUR

For Children of Most Ages
Said the Cat to the Dog '
A series of plays
-about Mompty and Peckham and the Jackson family
Written for Children's Hour by Martin Armstrong
1-' Kidneys for Breakfast'
Production by Eve Burgess
Many of you will remember Mompty the Cat and Peckham the Dog, who live with the Jackson family-Mum, Dad, Diana, and Ronnie-at the Laurels. (Or perhaps it would be truer to say that Mompty and Peckham graciously allow the Jacksons to live with them.)
Mompty often annoys Peckham by telling him to mind his own business, but today you can hear how she decides to mind it for him, which he dislikes even more.

: MUSIC FOR THE JEWISH NEW YEAR

London Jewish Male Choir
Director, Martin White
The Jewish Year 5715 began on the eve of September 27, followed by the statutory Ten Days of Penitence, which end at nightfall on the Day of Atonement, October 7. Zocharti Loch is a message of comfort from the prophet Jeremiah; Berosh Hashana is a powerful and moving prayer, composed by the legendary martyr Rabbi Amnon of Mayence, in which ' it is decided how many shall pass away, and how many be born'; and the Kol Nidrei is the opening prayer of the evening service for the Day of Atonement, after the fast begins. D. C.

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.

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.
