: Blue Peter

with Valerie Singleton, John Noakes, Peter Purves.

Which of these puppies do you think will be Blue Peter's new guide dog?
"Dear Blue Peter, Please can you tell us how Honey is getting along?"
We still get about twenty letters a week asking after Honey the Blue Peter guide dog, although it's over two years since she left us as a fully-trained guide dog for the blind.
Honey was bought by Blue Peter viewers who collected enough silver paper to buy two and a half guide dogs. But before guide dogs start their intensive training they have to be 'puppy walked', which means that the puppy goes to live with a family, and is brought up like an ordinary well-trained dog until it's old enough to learn how to be a guide dog.
This was exactly what we did with Honey, but we've never really stopped missing her since the day she left, and judging from their letters neither have Blue Peter viewers.
So, as we still have enough silver paper In the kitty to pay for one and a half guide dogs' training-and as we happen to know that the Guide Dogs for the Blind Association is desperate for puppy walkers, we've decided to try again.
Today, Derek Freeman, the Puppy Walking Manager, will be in the Blue Peter studio with Valerie, John and Peter to select Blue Peter guide dog number two. The puppy will be chosen from a litter of ten yellow labradors. Their father is Timber, who is Honey's father, and their mother is Kree, who is Honey's mother's aunt. We don't know what their precise relationship is to Honey, but we'll settle for half-sisters and brothers!
Incidentally, the Guide Dogs for the Blind Association really is desperate for puppy walkers, so if you feel like becoming a puppy walker yourself, and if you live near one of their centres at Birmingham, Coventry, Leicester, Kingston or Watford write straight away to the Guide Dogs for the Blind Association, [address removed] (marking your envelope 'Puppy Walker').
But whether you're going to be a puppy walker or not, look in to see the new Blue Peter guide dog. After all, it may be your silver paper that paid for her!

: Don't Count the Candles

An essay on growing old photographed and directed by Lord Snowdon.

When we are children we hail every birthday as a milestone on the road to freedom and independence. Then somewhere around the mid-twenties we feel the first twinges of doubt and soon we find ourselves hesitating before we tell everyone that we have notched up another year.
Old age is something to which few people look forward with enthusiasm; some try hard to pretend that it won't really happen, some have a deep fear of it, most of us view it with slightly uneasy resignation.
This film is an attempt to capture something of what it feels like to be old in a society which for the most part is youth-oriented. It looks at the lengths to which people will go in order to delay the effects of the advancing years; and it tries to learn how different people adjust to being old.
There are contributions from Cecil Beaton, Noel Coward, Baroness Asquith, Leopold Stokowski, Field-Marshal Montgomery, Dame Barbara Hepworth, Sir Compton Mackenzie, Admiral Sir Alexander Ramsay and Lady Patricia Ramsay.
Written and narrated by Derek Hart.

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.
