: LISTEN WITH MOTHER

A programme for children under five
Nursery rhymes, stories, and music
'Your programme,' wrote a mother, 'is very much appreciated by my daughter-aged sixteen months. She joins in the nursery rhymes that she knows wi'h such words as "wool" " full," " lane," etc., at the appropriate moment.' Letters such as this, which come to us from time to time, make us wonder at how young an age a child may begin to take active and unprompted notice of these programmes for the under-fives. Of this same little girl, for instance, her mother adds, ' Today she must have understood some of the story, as, on entering the room, I discovered her sitting underneath her high chair. I had no idea of what was happening until I heard the story-teller say, " Little Wu came out from underneath the chair "-then I understood.' Coincidence?-or had this little girl really caught and acted upon some phrase in the story which was already familiar to her experience? The five stories of ' Sam and Little Wu,' by Molly Sole , will be broadcast again this week. They will be read by Julia Lang whose month as story-teller begins today -and perhaps this little girl will once more be listening. Elizabeth A. Taylor

: MRS. DALE'S DIARY

Script by Joan Carr-Jones
To be repeated tomorrow at 11.0 a.m. Last week Mrs. Owen rang Sally and asked if Jenny could stay with her for a few weeks because she was getting in everyone's way. Sally .agreed, but Mrs. Dale felt that the Owens were taking advantage of Sally's good nature. Mrs. Morgan told Thompkins about Gwen's flat and when she saw Thompkins' wistful expression she felt sorry. However, the next day Thompkins told Mrs. Morgan he had heard of a flat. Mrs. Dale had a letter from Alec's wife, Miriam, saying she was coming to England. Dr. Dale told Alec he should give Miriam a happy time. To Alec's surprise when Miriam arrived she had already planned to take a cottage in the West Country. Bob offered to drive her down. Maud who had come to see Gwen decided Miss Pink should accompany them, as Miss Pink and Maud were getting on each other's nerves. Neither Bob nor Miss Pink liked the idea.

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.
