: Play School: Useful Box Day

A programme for children at home.
Presenters this week, Miranda Connell, John White
Today's story is called "Merrylegs" by Peter Wiltshire

Every day this week there's a real working model of a fairground roundabout. It turns around to an exciting sound for the poem which is about a merry-go-round. On Dressing-up Day, Tuesday, John plays a guessing game with different hats. On Wednesday, a toucan with a huge beak comes to visit the other pets in Play School. On Friday, in the experiment, Miranda divides a cake between the toys.
(to 11.20)

with Stephanie Bidmead as Mrs. Mellish, Fiona Walker as Susan, John Bryans as Mr. Mellish, Jill Melford as Mrs. Donkin
(Norman Rodway is a member of the Royal Shakespeare Company)

"An extremely entertaining and swift-flowing ninety minutes... A performance of deadly accuracy from Nigel Davenport as the raffish P.R.O." (The Times)

In the second of Alan Plater's three plays, the private relationships of a public relations man come under examination. Donkin can't resist women - and he can't help running away when, as invariably happens, his womanising gets him into trouble.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

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.
