Nursery rhymes, stories and music
'Her favourite rhyme is " See Saw "
When can we have " This is the way the ladies ride "? It is my favourite.' ' Her greatest favourites are " Tinken Bells ," and "The Grand Old Jink of Hork " And so we could go on. What makes a favounte? A variety of reasons, it seems, among them. its opportunities for spontaneous and inventive play. A girl saw the possibilities of ' The Grand Old Duke ' when she asked for it on her birthday ' because Granny has promised me a drum '; a boy goosesteps up and down, ringing a very small bell, and singing ' Jingle Bells '; while another girl is sometimes worried because we do not give her time to fix her piece of string to the chair she ' drives ' to the same song. Such activities may indeed sometimes involve what amounts to a real discovery.
These ' favourite ' rhymes, and others too. will be heard again this week, sung, as usual, by Eileen Browne and George Dixon.

Script by Lesley Wilson
To be repeated tomorrow at 11.0 a.m. Last week Maud French, Alec, and Bob went to Cornwall to try to persuade Miss Pink to return. When they arrived, the hotel was unable to accommodate them so they all spent an uncomfortable week-end at Miriam's cottage. Bob did persuade Miss Pink to return and Alec decided to spend a few more days with Miriam. Mrs. Dale, worrying because of all the things still to be done before Gwen's wedding, received a letter from Grandfather Dale , saying that he was coming to stay for a week before the wedding. In spire of Mrs. Date sending him a telegram asking him not to come, he arrived and upset the Dale household by annoying Mrs. Freeman and eating a great deal.

Production by Douglas Moodie
The first meeting of Mary, Queen of France and Scotland, and the Earl of Bothwell, took place on the hunting field at Fontainebleau; this was quickly followed by a private audience at which he impressed his young Sovereign more by his viral personality than by his charm of manner. Within a year, and a few months after the death of her boy-king husband, Francois, she set sail for Scotland escorted by Scotland's Lord High Admiral, the Earl of Bothwell. There she faced her strongest opponent, the fanatical John Knox. But he was not the only trouble-maker. The Earl of Arran, out of hia wits for love of the Queen, planned to abduct her. For being implicated in this affair, Bothwell was imprisoned in Edinburgh Castle, but escaped and fled to the Continent where he remained for more than two years.
Earl of Bothwell:
Henry, Lord Darnley:
Maitland of Lethington:
