: LISTEN WITH MOTHER

A programme for children underfiveNursery rhymes, stories, and music
She was thrilled when she heard you sing the last bit to " Sing a song of sixpence, as she always said you must not know that Jenny Wren put the maid's nose on again.' Our first version of this nursery rhyme, when broadcast long ago, left off the reassuring couplet at the end, and this little girl was not alone in noting the omission, nor in expressing satisfaction when later it was remedied. But the youthful mind reaches out insatiably, and no sooner had we put this matter right than we were confronted with another—' Jenny wants to know how the wren got the nose away from the blackbird.' This problem, however, we could not solve! ' Sing a song of sixpence ' has become well loved among our rhymes and will be included in this week's programmes, together with other favourites. For our stories this week we have ' Michael's Birthday Present (Felicity Attlee), ' Tumpy, the Circus Elephant ' (Margaret Wallace ), ' Lucky, the Friendly Foal ' (Ursula Hourihane), and Jean Sutcliffe 's two stories about 'Charlie's Big Red Bus.'

: MRS. DALE'S DIARY

Mrs. Dale, the doctor's wife, records the daily happenings in the life of her family
Script by Jonquil Antony
Last week Sally went to see Miss Russell to tell her about the position Mr. Morris had offered her. Miss Russell asked Sally if she would mind accompanying her to the Grand Hotel. She then told Sally she had acquired the lease of the florist shop in the hotel and proposed to put Sally in charge of it. Sally was delighted and telephoned to Mr. Morris to say she would not be able to accept his kind offer, after all. White Mr. Fulton and David were in Wales, Jenny made another scene. Mr. Fulton told Jenny he would not consider helping her until she learned to behave herself. Gwen, running after Isabel Fielding's kitten in her house, ran into the rooms that Isabel was having converted into a flat. Isabel told Gwen she proposed to let the flat at a fairly reasonable rent.

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.
