: Play School: Useful Box Day

A programme for children at home.

It's Springtime - so in Play School there are Spring flowers for "Ring-a-Ring-a-Roses"; the Farmer is in his Dell again, and of course there's the Spring Cleaning to be done. Peter Rabbit's hutch gets swept out on Wednesday, and Nancy Quayle tells a favourite Mr. Duster story. On Friday through the windows you can visit the country and go shopping in a donkey cart.
Today's story is called "Shetland Peg" by Joanna Stubbs.

: Summer 67: 1: The End of Spring: Padstow to Newquay in Cornwall

A documentary series that looks at our changing attitudes to the countryside.

A waiting land, waiting for sun, for harvest, for trippers. A mixture of bingo slate, landladies, rubber suits, surfers, farmers; and the most ancient religious ceremony still practised in England. A mixture that confuses the eye and mind-yet is England today.

Walter Hoermann is a German businessman visiting the English branch of his firm. A keen amateur photographer, he prefers to observe life rather than get involved in it.

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.

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.
