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.'

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.
