: LISTEN WITH MOTHER

A programme for children under five
I'm Edward John , I'm not very long; I'll be big soon, Good afternoon!
What inspired our four-year-old poet? It was the song of Mitten the Kitten. Mitten and the little verse he sings about his name. seem without doubt to have endeared themselves to our small listeners. ' 'Please will you tell her again the stories about Mitten the Kitten, and sing her the little song which accompanied all the ta'es?' ' Could we have " Mitten the Kitten again, with its little signature tune? The whole family has been humming, singing, and whistling it ever since Mitten was first broadcast several weeks ago.' 'She still remembers the Mitten the Kitten stories and sings his little song.' All such requests will now be granted, for these established favourites by Christine Rees will be heard again this week. This time, however, the voice that reads them will be a new one, that of Dorothy Smith , who becomes our fourth story-teller today and begins her first month with our programme. Her picture appears on Wednesday.

Script by Lesley Wilson
To be repeated tomorrow at 11.0 a.m. Last week Sally had an interview with Mr. Morns who offered her the position of manageress in the floral department of his Oxford Street store. Sally would get a larger salary, but she was concerned because she felt it would be disloyal to Miss Russell to accept the position. Mr. Fulton, who was going to Wales, ottered to take David with him so he could visit his family. Gwen was disappointed because she had already planned the things they were going to do that week-end.

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.
