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.'

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.
