: PLAY SCHOOL

A programme for children at home
Useful Box Day
Presenters this week,
Carol Chell , Brian Cant
In the story chair, Betty Turner
I must go down to the seas again, to the lonely sea and the sky.
And all I ask is a tall ship and a star to steer her by. And the wheel's kick and the wind's song and the white sail's shaking.
And a grey mist on the sea's face and a grey dawn breaking
(From Sea Fever by JOHN MASEFIELD )
Play School this week is all about the sea.

for Monday:
ENGINEERING RESEARCH
4: A Bicycle folds in three
Is it possible to design a bicycle that would solve our cities' traffic problems? Perhaps one that is cheap, lightweight, and folds up small.
The challenge to the engineer is not only a technical one. There are many intangible problems in choosing the right specification in the first place.
Presented by David Newland and Gordon Williams with Leslie Roberts , Alex Moulton
Directed by NEIL RYDER
Produced by EDWARD GOLDWYN

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
