A programme for children under five
'He said " So-long, matc," and I said it too,' says the four-year-old hero of Diana Ross 's story, ' William and the Lorry.' And William's words indicate an element in this story for our under-fives. In these days of mechanical things, reflected in our children in their intense interest in trains and motors, a story about a lorry makes an initial appeal, while to have a lorry-ride, as happens in this tale, must be a wonderful adventure. But to be acknowledged, as William is. as equal with the lorry-driver himself-that crowns the experience, for tha: is what gives to William a conviction of his own importance, a conviction very necessary to an under-five in a world of grown-ups where he easily senses his own inadequacy and insignificance. This story will be told again today and tomorrow by Catherine Edwards whom we welcome back once more for her next turn as storyteller. On Wednesday and Thursday come the tales of ' The Three Bunnies' by June Colbourne, and 'The Nest by Elizabeth Gardner , and on Friday, ' The Old Black Kettle ' bv Liiias Edwards.

Bill Sarvill arid his Orchestra
Script by Lesley Wilson
Last week Mr. Gilroy drove Mrs. Dale and Miriam back from Devon. It became obvious that Charles Gilroy was devoted to Mrs. Dale, so she decided to end her driving lessons with him. Miriam had a letter from Alec saying he had a good job in Edinburgh, so she decided to join him there. Gwen gave a birthday party for her father. Richard Fulton went to a twenty-first birthday party for Jill Delaney , daughter of a friend. Having left a note for her mother saying she had elop;d, she persuaded Richard Fulton to ' drive her to see a sick friend.' He discovered her plan and drove her to Rose Cottage. Meanwhile the newspapers had printed stories of ' Richard Fulton 's Elopement.' Mrs. Freeman and Sally at Rose Cottage were amazed to read of it. However, Mr. Fulton and Jill eventually arrived. Mr. Fulton telephoned Jill's mother and was furious to learn of the newspaper reports.
