A programme for children at home.
Presenters this week, Miranda Connell, Rick Jones
Today's story is called "Oh Essie!" by Geraldine Kaye
Do you ever forget things and get in a muddle? Today's story is about a schoolgirl who is very forgetful. Wellington boots, football boots, and a pair of very old boots come into the story Miranda tells on Wednesday, and on Friday Rick finds a piano in Play School and uses it to tell a story.
There are lots of games in Play School this week: "Simon Says" and jumping-over-puddles game are just two that Miranda and Rick ask you to play with them. Would you like to go across the sea, riding just above the waves? On Wednesday, the windows show some people travelling this way - in a giant hovercraft.

The Playboy of the Western World
This film was awarded three citations when it was shown at the Boston, Massachusetts Festival. It was also shown at the 1962 Edinburgh Festival, but was never given a general release in this country.
It was shot on location in Dingle Bay, County Kerry, and many of the cast came from the production of the play at Dublin's Abbey Theatre.
The language, not surprisingly is Irish through and through, and shot with Synge's inimitable poetry. Superb acting from a distinguished cast, which includes the incomparable Siobhan McKenna as the put-upon Pegeen, makes it a film to remember.
