: LISTEN WITH MOTHER

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.

: MRS. DALE'S DIARY

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.

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.
