: LISTEN WITH MOTHER

A programme for children under five
Nursery rhymes stories, and music
'Bovver dat,' said a little girl to her mother after a ' Listen with Mother ' broadcast, ' you better write to dat lady I So her mother did-to ask why we no longer played and sang the nursery rhyme ' One, two, three, four, five.' We had introduced it into some of the earlier broadcasts in an incomplete version-but so many children were ' sorry ' for us because we ' didn't know ' the whole rhyme, and so many wrote to tell us how it should end, that we discontinued using it until we could make a new recording. Whereupon numerous requests like the one above quickly made us aware how popular a rhyme it was. Even more illuminating, we thought, was the persistence of the requests over the weeks. Not hearing the nursery rhyme did not mean that the children forgot about it, or that they accepted the inevitable and ceased to ask for it. Impressions are vivid when you are under five and the desire to repeat an enjoyed experience is very strong. This favourite rhyme has been back in the programmes for some time now, and our young listeners can enjoy it still again this week. Elizabeth A. Taylor

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

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.
