: PLAY SCHOOL

A programme for children at home
Useful Box Day
Presenters this week,
Carole Ward. Johnny Ball
In the story chair, Jill Graham
Today's story is called
' Sally goes Hopping'
Water in bottles, water in cans Water in kettles, water in pans.
It's always the shape of whatever it's in. Saucepan or kettle, bottle or tin.
That is Play School's poem this week. Today the saucepan lid makes a car wheel, and Carole does the washing-up. There's more washing on Tuesday but this time it's dirty clothes. On Thursday, some kitchen pictures are made, and on Friday the science experiment is about water.

: THE LONG POLAR WALK

Programme 2:
Race For The Pack
I think the appeal of this trip is, in every sense of the word, the bigness of it-the bigness in time, the bigness in distance, the bigness as a chatlenge-a challenge of human endurance.
Wally Herbert , leader of the British Trans-Arctic Expedition, along with three other men and forty huskies, set off from Barrow, a small Eskimo village in Alaska, on February 21 this year. These four men intend making a 3,800-mile trek across the constantly shifting and breaking ice of the Arctic Ocean to the Norwegian island of Spitzbergen. It will take them one and a half years.
Filmed by a BBC crew who lived and worked with the expedition, tonight's programme tells the story of the tense and anxious weeks leading up to their departure and of their first days on the ice. Now, nine weeks out, what are their chances? In the studio to give their own personal views are two Polar explorers, Colonel Andrew Croft and Sir

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
