There are five party hats and a cake with five candles for the toys today because it's a special celebration for them - five years ago today they came to Play School. Julie and Rick sing some new songs, and the windows show one of the newest aeroplanes in the world.
Between 1850 and 1900 Germany became a world industrial power. As production rose so did the socialist vote, but the revolution, feared by Bismarck, never came. Why?

A series which explores living memory.
Fifty years ago there wasn't a single family planning clinic in this country. Birth Control was described as 'two dirty words.'
Then Dr. Marie Stopes wrote "Married Love" and "Wise Parenthood" - and sparked off a social revolution.
The advocates of birth control who founded and staffed the first clinics fought a fierce battle against the ignorance and prejudice of the times.
In tonight's film some of these pioneers recall that fight to help free women from the fear of unwanted pregnancies.
Taking part: Dr. Helena Wright, Dr. Evelyn Fisher, Dr. Olive Gimson, Baroness Stocks, Charis Frankenburg, Alicia Fleming, Cecily Mure, Elizabeth Richardson

Can the Americans save the series? Eight matches gone, only one to play and the score is U.S.A. 3 1/2, the World 4 1/2. This final match takes place on one of Britain's most beautiful seaside links.
Dick Sikes, U.S.A. v. Kel Nagle, Australia at Turnberry
A battle between youth and experience. Sikes is one of the most promising young players on the U.S. circuit-he has already been in the top ten of their season's money-winners. Nagle, representing the World, was British Open Champion in 1960 and winner of professional titles when Sikes was a boy of nine.
Prize-money: $4,000 to the winner; $3,000 to the loser
