A programme for children at home.
In the story chair, Brian Wildsmith
As this is Bank Holiday week and the end of the summer holidays, Play School is featuring seashells of all kinds and showing different games that can be played with them.
Brian Wildsmith is in the story chair again talking about animal pictures of long ago-the Lascaux cave paintings-and works by Pisanello and Rousseau. There will be another dip into the picture book 'This Is London', exploring the Cockney world within the sound of Bow Bells rather than the grander landmarks of the conventional tour.
Isobel Barnett and Eleanor Summerfield compete with Richard Murdoch and Lance Percival under the eye of Peter Haigh.

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.
