It's midsummer, and the songs and stories this week are mostly about the sunshine. This week's poem is about grasshoppers and through the window on Wednesday there are lots of other small creatures that live in the long grass. Richard Baker visits Play School again on Wednesday and Thursday to tell some more stories. On Friday, Science Day. Colin experiments with some magnets.

The Johnny Scott
by Alan Plater
With Norman Rodway as Murphy, Nigel Davenport as Donkin
(Norman Rodway is a member of the Royal Shakespeare Company)
"...the best thing that Mr. Plater has done. He really gives the grain of a certain lonely and desperate slice of provincial life" (The Guardian)
In the first of this trilogy we meet Murphy, who, in his own words, is a 'humble pen-pusher in a cardboard-box factory.' Murphy is a born victim, a pathetic, yet infuriating figure who tries to liven up his life by joining tape-recording clubs, film societies, and wine-making classes. Norman Rodway's performance as Murphy was highly praised by all the critics.
