A programme for children at home
Presenters this week Marla Landi, Colin Jeavons
Today's story is called "What Anna Saw" by Inger and Lasse Sandberg
"There was a crooked man, and he walked a crooked mile,
He found a crooked sixpence against a crooked style;
He bought a crooked cat, which caught a crooked mouse.
And they all lived together in a little crooked house."
Have you ever done any measuring? A crooked mile is one of the things Colin tries to measure on Friday. Today is April Fools' Day when people play tricks on each other. Marla and Colin watch out in case anything odd happens in "Play School". There are other tricks to watch later in the week when George Melly brings his own Punch and Judy show.

4:A Cathedral and its City in Julywith JOHN
A symbol of faith rising above the city of Wells, the cathedral is also a major tourist attraction
When I'm away and feeling sorry for myself this is the England I remember ... the quiet charity ... the slow music ... the military memory ... and the country dream, set in an English garden.
This is John le Carre talking about the cathedral city of Wells, in Somerset, in July. The author of The Spy Who Came In From the Cold has made his home just outside Wells, and found that he has moved into a traditional world. He himself is a ' 'modern' man, acutely sensitive to the attitudes of the twentieth century, and tonight's documentary is a reflection of the feelings of such a man looking at the past-its beauty and its social consequences.

At the end of last week's story, Guy's unit arrived in Crete at the moment when the British Forces were collapsing. In the ensuing chaos of retreat, he barely escaped with his life. This week - in the last story in the trilogy - a new personnel computer selects Guy for parachute training, and he soon finds himself fighting in Yugoslavia with the partisans...
