: LISTEN WITH MOTHER

A programme for children under five
' Piease Mr. Announcer ,' wrote a four-year-old boy one day, ' you to: got to tell us [he name of the music last Friday.1 ' My daughter,' writes a mother, * always asks what the introductory music is called,' ' He specially likes,' says another mother, ' hearing the name of the introductory music.' Names are important to children -to have named something is to have bestowed upon it an identity and to have given a child a sure hold upun it. But a piece of music, heard simpiy as music without reference to associations suggested by its title, speaks a different message to each individual hearer, and we want to give our music its chance to make this unbiassed impact on our small listeners. For that reason we cling to our practice of not announcing the titie of our opening music until the last day of the week. About this week's music, therefore, we will say no more than that it has already proved most popular with our under-fives, and we are sure many of them will quickly recognise it. Its name, if they still need it, they can hear on Friday.

: MRS. DALE'S DIARY

Script by Joan Carr-Jones
To be repeated tomorrow at 11.0 a.m. Last week Michael took Gwen out in his car for a driving lesson and Gwen drove the car into a gatepost. Michael was most annoyed and they quarrelled. Mrs. Dale discovered she had lost her ration books. Mrs. Mountford had picked them up in the grocer's and had kept them to ' teach Mrs. Dale a lesson.' Alec Dale arrived in England for the Festival. Mrs. Dale told him about the missing case and Alec sent the doctor a small, fierce dog to guard his car. Mrs. Freeman gave the dog to Maud French. When Mrs. Freeman visited Maud she found the dog being completely spoilt and during lunch it bit Mrs. Freeman's ankle. Mrs. Dale tried on last year's summer dresses and found they were all too small for her. Richard Fulton asked Sally if he might work in her cottage.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
