A programme for children at home.
Storyteller this week, Nancy Quayle
Perhaps one of the strangest actors yet to be featured on television makes his debut today in Play School as the hero of a serial film in five episodes. He is a snail, and in the story, specialty written for this programme by Diane Ismay, he emerges as a very real character. The film is directed by Dorothea Brooking who is well known for her other children's serials, Tom Sawyer and The Secret Garden. Filming a snail in London is no easy task, as live snails tend to be temperamental actors and shut themselves in their shells at crucial moments. However this one, as you will see, behaved very well.

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.
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.
