A programme for children at home.

Lionel brings his guitar again to Play School this week, and today he finds a different song to sing to each of the toys in turn. On Tuesday Carole and Lionel dress up as space-travellers. Lionel reads a picture book on Wednesday about London, and through the windows there is a double-decker London bus being washed. Through the windows on Thursday there is the elephant Toto having a bath. On Friday, Carole does an experiment with a candle and a jam jar.

: Theatre 625: To See How Far It Is: 3: To See How Far It Is

by Alan Plater
With Nigel Davenport as Donkin and Norman Rodway as Murphy
with Avril Elgar as Margaret, Anne Stallybrass as Kate, Geoffrey Bayldon as Palmer, Peter Stephens as Captain Carruthers
(Norman Rodway is a member of the Royal Shakespeare Company)

Murphy is recovering from a nervous breakdown. Donkin is, as ever, 'running like hell.' They find themselves reluctantly sharing a cabin on a Mediterranean cruise. Murphy just wants to read his library book on home wine-making, but Donkin has other ideas and persuades the steward to send a little feminine company in their direction.
"A trilogy which needed its three parts. It took the crossbeam of the third one to achieve a structure. The structure proved to be, of all things, a modern morality." (Sunday Telegraph)

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.
