A programme for children at home.
Presenters this week, Valerie Pitts, Rick Jones
Today's story is called 'Gennarino'
Written and Illustrated by Nicola Simbari.
Today's programme has to do with the sea and boats: sailing boats made from match-boxes, a picturebook about fishing boats, and some songs that sailors used to sing. On Wednesday a brilliant bird from the jungle, a macaw, comes to visit the other Play School pets. On Thursday Rick makes a big picture of the sea and through the windows Pipaluk, the baby polar bear from London Zoo, has a look at his own swimming pool. Valerie does an experiment on Friday with toy sailing boats and Rick reads Maurice Sendak's book Where the Wild Things Are.

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.
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.
