This is another farming week with traditional and new country games and songs and a real tractor in Play School. Eric Thompson grew up in the country and has brought the world he knew as a child into the scripts he has prepared for himself and his wife Phyllida Law.
A new feature appears on Thursday - the felt pens Skitter, Hope, and Camberley, who give shape to their dreams with thick lines, thin lines, and spots.
The week's visitor is Eileen Colwell, pioneer of children's libraries and queen of storytellers. She will tell favourite stories she has told before, and Tuesday's picture-book will be "Old Winkle and the Seagulls" by Gerald Rose.

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.
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.
