: Play School: Useful Box Day

Presenters this week Julie Stevens, Rick Jones
In the story chair, Myrtle Richardson

January falls the snow,
February cold winds blow,
In March peep out the early flowers,
And April comes with sunny showers.
These are the first lines of Play School's opening poem this week, and as it is the first day of the New Year Rick and Julie use ribbon, cardboard, string, and pictures from the Useful Box to make a calendar, which shows a different picture for each month of the year.
Today's story is called 'The Tale of Peter Rabbit' by Beatrix Potter
(to 11.20)

A readjustment

Mrs. Cooke was born in Victorian England. She has had a long, vigorous, independent life. Now after a lifetime of self-sufficiency she feels a prisoner in her own body; after eighteen years sharing a house with her daughter she will share a room with two other old ladies; Mrs. Cooke is moving into a Salvation Army home.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

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.
