: LISTEN WITH MOTHER

A programme for children under fiveNursery rhymes, stories, and music
' My time will come,' says the holly tree to the proud horse-chestnut, in today's story by T. Mallin ; and the holly tree's time is winter, and especially Christmas, as she very well knows. In all our stories this week, we, like the holly, are looking ahead to Christmas. Tomorrow, helpful Nicholas reappears-and he really is helpful-in another story by Elizabeth Cole man. This time he assists with the Christmas cooking. In Wednesday's tale by E. Herbert , Billy prepares a Christmas tree for the birds, ready for Christmas Eve, and on Thursday, Mr. Cherry, in ' A Fairy for the Christmas Tree ' by Stella Johns , preparesone for the children. Friday's story has a theme familiar throughout literature, about the triumph of the humble little fir tree who comes into his own at Christmas. All these stories will be told by Julia Lang , whose month as storyteller begins today. This week our music, too, reflects the approach of Christmas with ' Christmas is coming, the goose is getting fat ' and ' Dame get up and bake your pies,' and we shall also hear the two well-loved Christmas songs, ' The Rocking Carol ' and ' Away in a Manger.'

: Mrs. Dale's Diary

ScripTo be repeated tomorrow at 11.0 a.m.
Last week the workmen repaired the damage caused by the bath's over-flowing and finally departed. The Dales settled down once more to a peaceful life, but were soon disturbed by Mrs. Freeman, who declared that Captain was missing. They organised a search and finally decided that he must have been nailed under the floorboards. The next day the men came back to take the floorboards up, but there was still no sign of Captain. That night Mrs. Freeman walked into the lounge with Captain in her arms, explaining he had suddenly appeared from the attic. Sally got Bella out of quarantine. Through Bob's efforts, Elaine Allardyce found a house. Mrs. Dale and Mrs. Freeman took Timothy to Elaine, both realising how much they were going to miss him.

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.
