A programme for children at home.
Storyteller this week, David Kossoff
Every now and again a film camera goes out through the magic windows of Play School into the world outside. This week's film (to be shown on Wednesday and Thursday) is about the harvest, and it is directed by Molly Cox who has made many of the films which have appeared in this programme. The pattern of the seasons has been a frequent subject, and generally they have shown the countryside as seen through the eyes of a child.
