A programme for children at home.
Presenters this week, Marian Diamond, John White
In the story chair, Gerald Young
Some people live in houses
In flats some others dwell,
Others live in boats and ships
And lighthouses as well
This week Play School discovers what it is like to live in homes as different as a caravan and a lighthouse.
Today's story is called: 'The Hedge-hog that Couldn't Curl Up'
by Robin Smyth
With Leslie Sands as Will Thompson, Reg Lye as Charlie Harper
Charlie Harper was always the one who had it his own way, who took what he wanted... but now he is a lonely old man and it is Will Thompson who has the upper hand.
"They're gonna remember me, Charlie... hundreds and thousands of people, some of them not even born yet..."
The fifth programme in a new series in which the world-famous eighty-year-old opera producer Carl Ebert works in rehearsal conditions with young professional singers.
Tonight, scenes from Mozart's Don Giovanni including the scene in which Don Giovanni kills the Commendatore, and Leporello's catalogue aria ('Madamina').
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.
