: LISTEN WITH MOTHER

A programme for children under five
Nursery rhymes,' stories, and music
Trains! — magic word for our under-fives! We have. broadly speaking, two kinds of train stories. One kind is fantastic, in which the engine becomes a person and with whom the listeners can identify themselves. The other is realistic, which satisfies their love of watching and of travelling in trains. 'The London Express,' by Monica Jarrett , is a story of this kind which some of our listeners will have heard before and which will be broadcast again, tomorrow and on Wednesday. Friday's story, too—'Timothy and Sambo' by Hiida Rostron-is realistic, and very domestic. It tells how a goiliwog was made. But today's story, ' The Runaway Apple ' by G. A. Hanley , is fantasy; so, too, is Thursday's tale, ' Mousie ' by Elizabeth Graham , about Rosalind who had an imaginary mouse for a p'aymate. How close this story came to at least one child's own experience we heard after it was last broadcast. 'My little girt,' wrote a mother, ' is called Rosalind, and since she was two has lived with an imaginary mouse. He has been everywhere with us, and Rosalind leads him with fond words —" Come on Dizzy, where are you? " and a tug of the string that isn't there.'

: MRS. DALE'S DIARY

Script by Lesley Wilson
To be repeated tomorrow at 11.0 a.m. Last week there were a great many last-minute wedding preparations in the Dale household. Alec and Miriam arrived from the country; also the Owens, and Robin, the best man. Alec and Grand-father Dale created an awkward atmosphere by constantly arguing. On the eve of the wedding. Dr. Dale was called out to Mrs. Fos!er, who was expecting a baby. He still had not returned in the morning and Gwen and Mrs. Da e were getting very anxious. When everyone was nearly ready for the wedding Dr. Dale arrived, just in time to get changed and take Gwen to the church.

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.
