A programme for children at home
Presenters this week, Carol Chell, Gordon Clyde
Today's story: 'Inch by Inch' by Leo Lionni
A sky-view flat at the top of a high block, a small country cottage, or perhaps a grand castle-if you could choose, what kind of house would you like to live in? The Play School poem this week is about different sorts of houses:
Some houses are round
Some houses are square
Some houses are high up in the air
Some houses are fat
Some houses are thin
There are all kinds of houses for you to live in

To the occupants of the garden of 25 Telegraph Road the 'Human Beans' world sometimes looks a lot of fun. But parties with drink, singing and dancing can look better than they are, and sometimes it's a good thing to be on the outside looking in, especially if your viewpoint is astro-gnomic.
A series which explores living memory
In 1916 the archaic British penal system was menaced by a new sort of critic in the cells. Prisons were never to be the same again.
"Funny isn't it - you've got ten years for killing somebody - and I've got ten years because I won't kill anybody"
"Looking at it from now, I would say we demonstrated that it is impossible to break the spirit of men who are really convinced. And we have written conscientious objection permanently into the law of England"
(First World War Conscientious Objectors)
