A programme for children at home
Useful Box Day
Presenters this week,
Carole Ward , Brian Cant
Today's story is called
' When Anna Had a Cold ' by INGER and LASSE SANDBERG
A picture, a bow tie, and a spider's web are some of the things Carole and Brian make out of old newspaper from the Useful Box.
Later on in the week Carole makes a different kind of picture -a musical picture in the air. On Pets Day Brian brings a new animal to live in Play School and asks you to suggest a name for it. A strawberry birthday cake and a magic hat are two of the things that come into the ' Anna' stories -this week's picturebooks.

Play with a Tiger by DORIS LESSING starring
Music, DUDLEY SIMPSON Designer, John Cooper

Anna, an Australian, widowed, thirtyish, lives in an Earls Court bedsitter. She is a freelance writer. In the same house is Mary, slightly older, beginning to depend on the bottle. The men who drop in are 'loners' too. Tom is stolid, rather pompous; Harry, an ageing philanderer with a wife at home; and Dave who, like Anna, is an expatriate ...
This is the starting point of Doris Lessing 's play.

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.
