: Play School: Useful Box Day

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.
(to 11.20)

: Shakespeare Wallah

Starring Felicity Kendal, Shashi Kapoor
with Madhur Jaffrey.

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.

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.

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.
