A programme for children at home.
Presenters this week, Miranda Connell, Colin Jeavons
In the story chair, Donald Bisset
Today's story is called "The King and the Moon"
This week's Dressing-Up Day takes place inside a real castle when Miranda and Colin go to visit Bodiam Castle on the Sussex Downs. As usual, Dressing-Up Day is on Tuesday. Wednesday's story is about another castle. This one belongs to Babar, the King of the Elephants. Then, through the windows, a real baby elephant takes a bath. On Thursday Miranda makes a Play School flag; and on Friday Donald Bisset tells one of his own stories about a lion.

When he is deliberately insulted by an arrogant colleague his fellow officers expect him to issue a challenge.
