: Growth and Play: 9: Playing with Words

Programmes for parents about children.

Children in school are given many opportunities to talk before they learn to read and to write. Their talk grows out of their experience, their writing out of a desire to communicate this experience, and their reading out of a desire to confirm and extend it. By showing the child picture books, by reading and talking to him and, above all, by listening to him, the parent prepares the way for reading and writing and other and subtler forms of communication such as authorship and poetic writing.

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.
