A programme for children at home.
Presenters this week, Julie Stevens, Wally Whyton
Today's story is called "What Anna Saved" by Inger and Lasse Sandberg
All sorts of things are collected in the Play School Useful Box: today Julie uses sweet papers, egg cartons, and empty cardboard boxes to make a house. There's a house on wheels - an old gypsy caravan - to see on Tuesday, and Julie and Wally have a sing-song round the campfire. Among the places the windows show this week are a big river where wild bears go to fish, and a zoo where some chimpanzees are having a tea party.

This delightful film set in India twenty years ago after Independence, follows the adventures of a company of actors led by an Englishman, who tour the country performing Shakespeare.
But as the old Imperial culture declines, the Buckinghams, as the troupe is called, find it increasingly hard to get bookings.
When the film was first shown at the London Film Festival in 1965, it charmed audiences with its gentle nostalgia, and shifts between comedy and sadness.
Geoffrey Kendal, who plays Felicity Kendal's father in the film, is, in fact, her real-life father.
A last look around the daily scene with Michael Dean, Joan Bakewell, Tony Bilbow, Brian King, Sheridan Morley.
