: LISTEN WITH MOTHER

A programme for children under five
Nursery rhymes, stories, and music
This week's stories for the under-fives are about Sam and little Wu. Sam is small and round, and little Wu is covered with fur and has a long tail; he goes everywhere with Sam. and together they have a different adventure every day. The stories have been written by Mary Palmer.
We have referred before to the children's desire to know more about the characters in their stories. They like hearing a favourite tale over and over agajn-as one mother put it, ' they do so love a groove at that age '-but they like also, and especially as they get a little older, to hear new stories about characters whose acquaintance they have already made. Thus, their world pieces itself comfortably together, while the safe satisfactions of the familiar form a base from which to reach out into new experiences.
This is the first time we have devoted a complete week to stories about the same people, and we hope that, having made the acquaintance of Sam and little Wu today, our listeners will grow fond of them during the week and by Friday regard them as old friends.

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.
